Years ago, the Herzog family planted and raised 12 select varietals in a secluded portion of their vineyard. Each of the vines were chosen for their unique qualities to explore and create with. The key is lending each to a reach a perfect balance, one flavor building on another–until a new and special wine is created. This limited edition wine is the first of these estate blends, commemorating our 30th anniversary of making Herzog wines in California. This co-fermented, 12 grape field blend delivers a kaleidoscope of red and black raspberries, espresso, and dusty nutmeg.
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
