2013 Cosa Obra Proprietor's Blend

COSA OBRA
2013 Proprietor's Blend Red
Sonoma County

Tasting Notes
The 2013 Proprietor's Blend is inky dark in color, fruit forward, with loads of blackberry, vanilla and spice, reminiscent of Northern Rhône.  Impressively rich, yet balanced and structured.  The style of wine we really enjoy drinking this time of year.  Perfect with big red foods like seared meats and rich pasta dishes. This wine will age gracefully well through 2022.

Winemaking
Grapes were picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous hand sorting and refinement process. The whole berries were gently delivered to tank. Cold soaks lasted five to seven days, and fermentations were managed via a combination of delestage and pumpovers. Extended maceration ranging from three to four weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles, allowing us to perfect mouth feel and wine complexity. The wine was aged 26 months in 100% French oak, 25% of which was new.
