Sonoma County

Red Blend
Description

In 1981, Lyeth 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.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A brilliant garnet in color.

Aroma: 

Robust with aromas of blackberries, and black cherries with subtle notes of succulent dark chocolate.

Palate: 

This wine coats the palate with opulent flavors of blackberry, black cherry and hints of dark chocolate that lead to a long, lingering finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

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 was aged in a mix of French, Hungarian and American oak which lend to a unique flavor profile.
