The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
This MAGNUM COLLECTION wine is made from grapes grown at the Michel-Schlumberger estate vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Our winemaker carefully selected individual barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot to achieve the optimum expression of flavor for this “Red Field Blend”.
The color is a dark ruby with aromas of rich dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry, plum. The palate has lush mouthfeel, long finish of dark fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled ribeye steak, braised lamb shanks and firm cheeses.
