Velvet Reserve 2015 has a vivid ruby color and comes from the blend of Zinfandel and Barbera grapes grown in our Davis vineyards. It is a slightly-oaked fruit bomb with lots of cassis and strawberry flavors, somehow reminiscent of the Beaujolais wines. It balances power (15% alcohol) and smoothness with a round palate and soft tannins. It is the classic food friendly wine that you can pair with several mild and tasty foods. It has been bottled after only 4 months from the harvest in order to enhance the young and fresh character of the grapes.
