2016 Carhartt Venture™ Equilibrio

Flavor (palate): tart black cherry, leather, sandalwood 

Winemaker’s Notes: For how integrated and layered this wine is, it also has quite a youthful character overall. Rich tannins and a black fruit core develop into an explosive, vibrant mid-palate due to this wine’s beautiful acidity. Because of the perfect balance of texture and acid, pairings could include fennel sausage pizza with fresh basil, short-rib ragu and homemade bread, or even a panzanella salad. You won’t forget this wine! 

Ageing Potential: Now – 2030+

Additional Notes: Decanting for 30 minutes to an hour prior to enjoying will greatly help expose this wine’s complex bouquet. The reason for the name? In 2016, we harvested this fruit, all from the same vineyard, and quite frankly had no idea what to expect. After blending all four varieties together for the first time, the wine was surprisingly in perfect balance. And so, Equilibrio, meaning balance in Italian, was born!
