2018 Folded Hills 'August' Red Wine
Santa Ynez Valley, California
58% Syrah and 42% Grenache entirely from the Folded Hills estate vineyard. Foot trodden, fermented with native yeasts and 82% whole clusters and aged for 11 months in mostly neutral French barrique- only 2% was new.
92 points, Wine Enthusiast. "A roasted plum aroma is dusted in light herbs and seasoning salts on the nose of this bottling. Tart red-fruit flavors and tangy herbs show on the sip, which offers a hint of cooler-climate styles while retaining some richness."
