2016 Members Only
We are truly blessed to have the terroir at our Estate Vineyard, Destiny Ridge, to grow not only the bold classic Bordeaux varietals, but the rich and rare Rhone-style varieties as well. This Rhone red is blended and produced exclusively for our Wine Club Members. Our Alexandria Nicole Cellars winemaking team worked hand-in-hand with our 2018 Wine Club Blending Champion, Scott Kane, to bring this gem of a wine directly to you. The 2016 Member’s Only is a Grenache based blend, showcasing beautiful aromatics of blackberry, Rainier cherry, raspberry, and currant. Blended to perfection, the wine reveals precise balance, through the supple tannin profile and pleasant acidity. The palate is filled with rich plum, ripe blackberry, and cherry coming to a harmonious and lengthy finish leaving flavors of baking spice, black cherry and hints of sweet tobacco. With great structure and balance, this red blend is ready to drink now but with its bright acidity will allow for a terrific future and can be cellared until 2022.
