Red House Red

This red is a vibrant blend of five different varieties with Cabernet Franc as the main component. Merlot, Pinot Noir, and the French-American varieties-Foch and Regent-have minority roles in the blend, giving this wine a pleasant balance between ripe red fruit and earthy rusticity. This is a perfect table red for anything off the grill and for hearty pastas.

Red House Red

Appellation:Leelanau Peninsula
Bottling: 12% alcohol, .5% residual sugar, 1008 cases

Flavor and Aroma:
The ruby color of this wine is striking! It has a solid, medium body and fresh red fruit aromas (raspberry) and an herbaceous bell pepper aspect. There are marked oak flavors including vanilla spice.

Aging Potential:
This vibrant red will be most enjoyable for the next two to four years.

Thoughts for Food:
The pizza wine! Any tomato based sauce, cooked or uncooked will be a perfect match to the nice acidity, good texture and fruity character of our house red. Try either a Pasta/Bean salad with a vinegar based dressing or an even richer dish, minestrone soup, to complement this fruity wine.

Wine Makers Comments:
A favorite in my house, Red House Red, is a vibrant blend of vinifera and hybrid varieties. This wine benefits from the art of blending by our winemaking team. Raspberry and blackberry flavors are complimented by a smoky oak finish.
