2016 COLLIDE RED WINE
Red Blend of 38% Tempranillo, 23% Petite Sirah, 23% Carignan, 16% Graciano
Winemaker's Tasting Notes:
This bombastic wine offers layer upon layer of mesmerizing aromas. Black currants, black raspberries, black cherries, tree picked plums, mocha, sun-baked rocks and fresh purple flowers emerge and evolve. Supporting notes of chocolate, roasted meats, Asian spices and flax add further complexity. The aromatic notes continue through on the palate. This wine keeps delivering the goods long into it's finish.
2016 was an unquestionably near perfect vintage; with an early start and a season filled with long, warm days the grapes developed beautifully achieving optimal ripeness at harvest. The resulting wines exhibit expressive, balanced and complex fruit flavors, supported by elegant tannins.

The 2016 Collide is another gorgeous wine from Mark Herold. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, lavender and spice meld together in an inky, juicy red loaded with character. The Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, Carignan, Graciano blend works beautifully here. The 2016 Collide offers terrific quality for the money.
