A fruit forward and full-bodied Red Blend named after our Winery Dog, Rolo the Chocolate Lab. Rolo's Red is a proprietary Red Blend named after our chocolate Labrador, Rolo, who quickly grew from a wee pup to a great, grinning, whale of a Lab. Rolo has been with us since the beginning of our winemaking adventures, and is turning 11 years old this year! Each year the blend is comprised of different grapes, but always we strive to make it fruit forward, with juicy dark berry flavors, big tannins, and notes of chocolate-of course! This year the blend is comprised of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc.
Two distinct grape varietals define the 2017 vintage of the Duel. Merlot offers waves of dark fruit, chocolate, and plum. Petite Verdot delivers black cherry, violet and sage.
