Matthews Winery

2021 Red Blend
  • Vineyards: Stoneridge, Solaksen, & Thunderstone
  • Winemakers: Alex Stewart & Hal Iverson
  • Alcohol %: 14.8
  • Release Date: July 2024
  • 60% Tempranillo, 25% Grenache, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Saturated garnet in color with crimson shade. Sappy black plum, cherry fruit leather, and sweet tobacco
    leaf aromas tease the depth and complexity. On the palate it is concentrated and powerful, yet elegant
    and expansive with dried dark fruits and graphite. The finish is nicely textured and balanced with a
    quenching acidity and lingering exotic spices, blood orange, and fig.
  • Inspired by Rioja, the grapes selected are derived from three distinct vineyards of the Lawrence
    properties in the Royal Slope AVA, with similar elevation, soil type, and climate
  • Few, compact clusters and small berries, resulting in wines that are ripe, concentrated, and intense. The fruit was hand-harvested and
    small lots were fermented in stainless steel for 30-40 days, then aged for two years in 75% new French
    oak of varying format before being vatted for additional aging.
