2001 Elements Red Wine Blend
2001 Elements Red Wine Blend

  Elements is an intriguing blend of predominantly red Bordeaux varietals - the best from Artesa's vineyards including Napa Carneros, Foss Valley near Atlas Peak, and Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Principally Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a small amount of Rhone varietals to add spice and character, this unique blend is aged two years in 50% new, 50% used French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes
Loads of ripe, dark fruit showing black cherries, black plum and currant, followed by hints of brown spice with roast coffee and chocolate filling out the aromas. On the palate the wine is round and plush. Black raspberry and wild blackberry flavors lead off with sweet spice and bright fruit fill the mid-palate. The finish is full and lively.
