Friday Wine Tasting…Heartland Stickleback Red!

March 21, 2014


Wine of the Week: 

2010 Heartland Stickleback Red


Winemaker’s Notes:

This friendly, medium-bodied red highlights the best of each varietal – Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz give the wine a rich savory character and structure, the Dolcetto lends brightness and lift and the Lagrein contributes spice, tannins and fresh, crisp acids. The grapes were fermented on their skins for five days before a cool fermentation in two and three-year-old oak barrels. The wine displays attractive and fragrant notes of black cherries, sweet plums and blackcurrants, followed by hints of chocolate and nutmeg.
