Dark, inky purple, plum (almost black) color. The intense aromas express blueberry and huckleberry fruit notes. The finish is rich with dark chocolate, blackberry and creamy Tahitian vanillan.
Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
"A new offering from the producer, this is a classically tropical, honeyed white wine, viscous, thick and oaky, with a touch of butter teasing the palate as it opens in the glass. For fans of full-bodied flavor, this is creamy and buttery in spades." – V. B.
The wine has a long and elegant finish and is ideal with fresh oysters on the half shell and pairs well with fresh cracked crab or crab cakes, grilled fish, sea scallops or chicken korma, a mildly spicy almond chicken curry (Indian), and goes nicely with grilled wild Salmon with sweet potatoes and baked organic asparagus.
The wine then displays it’s silky and elegant tannins in the form of ripe blueberry, cassis, tobacco and black cherry lined with integrated vanilla made possible by 26 months of French oak aging.

Vinum 2016 Red Dirt Red (Paso Robles) - Very strong smoky aromas of hickory and a solid pepper spice give a savory background to the backdrop of blackberry fruit on the nose of this bottling. That smoke carries into the palate, where roasted wood, campfire and bacon flavors meet with black currant and caramel. —M.K.

This is the most concentrated vintage of Red Dirt Red we have ever made. It expresses a dark plum, cranberry staining color which comes from low yielding, concentrated grapes.
