2014 Field Blend case (12x750mL)
124 cases produced.
The grapes for Field Blend are grown, harvested and fermented together in the tradition of Napa Valley’s early grape growers, reflecting the characteristics of the vintage. The third consecutive year of drought, the 2014 growing season was blessed with relatively mild growing temperatures, which favored a well-balanced crop, even ripening and concentrated flavors, creating a balanced, fruit-driven wine.
Inky purple in color and with a concentrated aroma, the 2014 Field Blend shows the generous berry fruit and black pepper nuances characteristic of Zinfandel. Juicy blackberry, raspberry and cranberry are backed with citrus hints of mandarin orange. Petite Sirah adds the warmth of baking spices and bayberry, resulting in a wine that is rich, balanced and complex, with a persistent and generous finish. 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.
