In the tradition of Napa Valley’s early grape growers, the varietals for Oakville
Ranch Field Blend are grown on a single Oakville hillside vineyard block, then harvested and fermented together, producing a lively, fruit-driven wine that’s perfect for everyday consumption. A blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, the Field Blend reflects the characteristics of the vintage, with the impact of each grape variety varying by the year, but always creating a balanced wine.
Deep, dark purple in color, the 2013 Field Blend is intensely brambly and redolent of dark berries on the nose. The palate shows currant and blackberry, with a hint of caramelized sugar and a warm mineral character. Its generous acidity gives the wine a very juicy center, with lengthy and pleasing tannins. Field Blend offers consumers an affordable, food-friendly red wine that’s deliciously drinkable on release, but one that will age comfortably in the cellar for several years.
