via Instagram Special thanks to Emilio at @benzigerwinery for a stellar tasting and great conversation in Glen Ellen, Sonoma, CA on 02-13-2017. He poured a number of Benziger’s Biodynamic wines, including these two special red blends, while sharing some great stories about the 85-acre property and Benziger family winemaking history.
/*
2013 Oonapais Estate Red – Loads of black fruit (blackberry and plum) and espresso notes. Juicy, round entry, velvety tannins. Drink now or hold through 2021.
/*
2013 Tribute Estate Blend – A rich blend of dark cherry and plum with more complex herb, spice, coffee and vanilla on the palate. Full body and chewy tannins. Let this one mellow at least a couple of years or hold through 2025.
