Cruse 'Monkey Jacket' Red Blend
notes from the importer:
The 2018 Monkey Jacket is 51% Valdiguié from vineyards carefully selected and located in Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Suisun counties. The synergy of these diverse terroirs showcase the beauty of Northern California, while still remaining accessible.
Approximately 20% of the blend was fermented whole cluster. All of the grapes were fermented in concrete and then pressed into older French oak barrels, a few puncheons, concrete tanks, and a small amount of stainless steel with an eye on transparency of fruit. Malolactic occurred naturally with the wine receiving a light sulfur addition immediately before bottling.Producer:Cruse Wine Co.Vintage:2018Country:United StatesRegion:CaliforniaAppellation:CaliforniaVariety:Blend - OtherColor:Red
Raspberry tart, sweet summer flowers, bramble, and the slightest hint of grilled meats and cherry pie. Bright, crunchy acidity, refreshing finish with just a bit of simple tannins that cleanse. If a red wine can be thirst quenching then this is it.
Composed of 51% Valdiguié, the remainder coming from Carignan, Syrah, and red field blend from the North Coast of California, we are are trying to show what California is exceptional at — making a high quality, engaging, wine for your table.
