2008 was a hot and smoky year in Soledad. This Big House Red lives up to that old Fruit Bomb moniker that you’ve come to expect. It starts with a nose full of loganberries and raspberries, with hints of leather and spices. The palate is clean, exhibiting flavors of cranberries, roses, and a touch of rhubarb. This finish lingers, with flavors of vanilla, and a touch of smoke.
The grapes underwent a cold soak for a couple of days, then were fermented at 60°-65°F. Portions of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation and barrel aging in mostly French and American neutral oak.
Please note the price above is the LCBO price - in BC the price is $12.99.
