2019 4040 Red Wine Case
Our 2019 “forty-forty” red blend is named for the 4,040 acres that make up Red Mountain, our home and the special sliver of land from which Fidélitas sources all of its fruit. This Cabernet-dominant blend, as they say in Bordeaux, is our “second wine” - still made using our traditional winemaking techniques but made in a style that can be enjoyed immediately without needing any bottle aging. Think of this as a little sibling to our Optu Red Mountain. On the aroma we get dark, brooding fruit tones: currant, black berry, plum, with fresh violet and floral notes. The tannins are soft and plush for a Red Mountain wine with a polished lingering finish | notes of plum, dark chocolate, and cola. Enjoy now through 2030.
BLEND: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
AGING: Aged for 20 months in 100% neutral oak barrels
