2015 Desparada Soothsayer
This unique blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Barbera and 7% Nebbiolo is sourced from various high quality vineyards in California, including Spanish Springs (23%), Chelle Mountain (22%), Pine Hawk (19%), Sorso (17%), Two Wolves (12%) and Luna Matta (7%). This wine has concentrated candied red fruit, jammy black fruit and an herbal, earthy mineral core. There’s bright acidity from the Barbera and structural tannins from the Cab and Nebbiolo. Full bodied and jammy, but there’s enough acidity to keep it fresh at 15% abv. Winemaker Vailla Esch is never afraid to try something new and different.
