2017-C Horse & Plow Draft Horse Red, North Coast, California (750ml)
A Monthly Wine Club Selection
A gulpable, satisfying blend of rganically and biodynamically farmed Carignane, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache.
Founded in 2008, Horse & Plow Winery is owned by husband and wife team, Chris Condos and Suzanne Hagins. Utilizing organic farming, small lot fermentations and traditional winemaking practices, they merge the best of old and new world techniques to produce balanced, food friendly and site-specific wines. The vineyards for this blend dot the North Coast of California, including Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties. Working exclusively with growers who are committed to using certified organic and/or biodynamic techniques, these sustainable practices allow Horse & Plow to craft wines with complexity and sense of place, while caring for worker health and the environment. Organic doesn’t stop when the grapes get to the winery—Horse & Plow wines are made naturally with no synthetic nutrients or additives, no GMOs, are vegan and contain low sulfites. Bright garnet in color, with complex aromatics of black cherry, blackberry, violet and garrigue. These are echoed on the palate along with prominent flavors of crushed raspberry and wild strawberry with a hint of baking spice; supple and velvety on the palate this fruit-forward blend finishes with delicate tannins and balanced acidity.
