Ink Grade Andosol 2017
Andosol draws inspiration from the historic field blends of California. The inherent stress the rugged site lends to grape growing will saturate the grapes with intensity and depth. An elegant example of this historic varietal, the 2017 Andosol is a reflection of all that Ink Grade has to offer, a wine polished and bold. Blend: 88% Zinfandel, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon A blend that can change from vintage to vintage, the 2017 Andosol is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. While the nose is marked by scents of redcurrants and gentle herbal shadings, the palate is full-bodied but taut and juicy, with silky but firm tannins and ample length. Aromas of blueberries, plums, dried oregano, earth, tar and peppercorns. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and lively acidity. Vibrant and juicy with a crunchy finish. Drink now or hold.
