Sonoma County Red Wine

Wine Profile:

In 1981, Lyeth Estate was founded in Sonoma County by Chip Lyeth. After having traveled through Bordeaux in the late 1970s, Chip came to believe what the Bordelais had known for centuries: that through blending, you could create a beautiful, distinctive wine, with unique characteristics often very different from the varietals from which it is created. Over 30 years later, we are still dedicated to Chip’s vision of making unique blends.

Returning to our roots, The Sonoma County Red Wine exemplifies the heritage of Lyeth as a pioneer in the world of Meritage blends. Sourced from vineyards in the Knight’s Valley and Dry Creek Valley, the wine is aged in a mix of French, Hungarian and American oak which lend to a unique flavor profile.
The Sonoma County Red Wine is crafted in the winemaking tradition of unifying the best characteristics of multiple grape varieties to produce a harmonious wine with balanced complexity.

Tasting Notes:

With aromas of wild raspberry, cocoa with notes of black pepper and cinnamon toast, this wine coats the palate with opulent flavors of cherry compote and hints of tea leaf and graham cracker. A rich, succulent mouthfeel with well balanced tannins make this complex wine immediately enjoyable and perfectly paired with a variety of hearty dishes.
