Fielding Estate Winery Red Conception 2008 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 90/100A berry spice basket delivered to your doorstep. Lovely, vibrant, light- to medium-bodied with a satin-silk texture. Spent 14 months in oak, but its subtle. Goes down slippery fast.

The 2008 Red Conception is a unique blend of several vinifera varietals, crafted separately in small lots before assembled. The name was inspired by our Jack Rabbit Flats Vineyard, once a very popular 'parking' spot among locals. As it turns out, more than just great wine was conceived in or vineyards....
Each variety was vinified separately and aged for fourteen months in oak barrels from select coopers. The wines selected for the final blend were chosen for their approachability, focus on fruit-driven aromatics, soft tannins and a rich mouthfeel. After several blending trials of each of the barrels in our cellar, the individual barrels were selected for the final blend.
