The 2015 Colby Red wine, a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel and Syrah, is a deep crimson color. Aromas of ripe red cherries, raspberries and star anise jump from the glass. The wine is generous on the palate with a rich mouthfeel complemented by well-integrated tannins and bold flavors of red berry and hints of clove spice. The finish is smooth with a slight toasty, vanillin character which lingers and is achieved from oak aging. Easy to drink and enjoy, this wine is a crowd pleaser.
2015 was another stellar growing year in California. Quality across the board was high. There was a lighter crop compared to last year and it was one of the earliest seasons on record. The fourth year of drought, a mild winter causing early bud break, followed by protracted flowering and unseasonably cool weather in spring, contributed to smaller grape clusters and the variable crop size.
