2019 E11EVEN REMIX
“Remix” is a barrel selection blend crafted from our favorite barrels in each lot. This wine is made with incredible intention and attention to detail. The idea of adding this wine to our portfolio came about in 2015. The quality of fruit in that vintage was high and gave us a lot of inspiration to be playful and to try some new blending concepts. We lovingly called our first go round with this wine “Mixtape”. Just like a mix tape is a compilation of favorite songs from varying musical genres, the blend was bringing together a mix of different varietals, with each one adding unique characteristics and layers to the final wine. As we continue to learn from prior vintages and blending sessions, we decided to branch out with this wine and now call it “Remix”. The 2019 Vintage is impossibly dark and supremely complex and concentrated. The final blend is 45% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Petite Sirah, 15% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Graciano. In additional steps to making this blend extra special, we aged this wine in 15% New French Oak for 20 months and held it back in bottle for an additional 6 months before release. This wine will improve with time in the bottle. If you plan on drinking soon, try giving it a few hours of extra oxygen in a decanter to make this wine really sing!
