2020 Ten Vines Red

2020 Ten Vines Red

The 2020 TVR is a medium body red blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 22% Tannat, & 3% Petit Verdot. This wine is dominated by fresh red fruit flavors throughout. Strawberry and blackberry notes are followed by currant on the finish. Inspired by Beaujolais nouveau, it is a wine intended to be drunk young. Minimal aging time ensures a lively wine with little tannin. An excellent red for the spring and summer, it is sure to please both red and white drinkers alike and it pairs very well with tomato-based sauces and heavier seafood such as tuna and salmon.

Cabernet Franc was co-fermented with Petit Verdot, while Tannat was fermented on its own. The wine was blended shortly after pressing and moved immediately to neutral French Oak barrels. Bottled young to preserve its fruity characteristics.

The first red wine of the 2020 vintage, this Ten Vines Red is a young red wine which is extremely approachable.

Pairs very well with tomato based sauces and heavier seafood such as tuna and salmon. An excellent accompaniment to grilled meats like chicken, sausages, and pork.
