The Bull

The Bull is a proprietary blend of Tempranillo (48%), Malbec (28%) and Petite Sirah (20%) and Syrah (4%).


Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Bull exudes flavors and aromas of blackberries, pomegranate, cedar, black currant, violets, mocha and earth. Good acidity, moderate tannins and a lingering long finish make this an excellent food pairing.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes were harvested in mid to late October 2016, anywhere from 23.2 to 25.0 Brix.
Winemaker Notes
Our grapes are sourced from a single vineyard with a south/southwest aspect of heavy greenstone and feldspar at 1,500 ft in elevation with a vine density of 1,140 to 840 vines to the acre. The vines at harvest carried 3.0 to 4.0 kilos per vine and had all wings and shoulders removed at veraison.
Production
Fermentations were punched down 4 times a day until dryness. The fermentation was started with indigenous yeast. Primary fermentation was finished off in barrels and battonage lasted for 9 months on a weekly basis.
