Winemaking Notes: The grapes for this unique red blend were sourced from sites throughout California's North Coast wine region. They were destemmed and gently crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation at warm temperatures to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine was then racked to a combination of French and American oak of which 20% was new. The wine lots were tasted throughout the aging process and blended together just before bottling.
Tasting Notes: The Sean Minor Nicole Marie blend displays aromas of ripe blueberry, dark cherry, cassis and vanilla. Flavors of blueberry and dark cherry combine with hints of oak spice to coat the palate. The soft tannins and sweet oak lead to a long and lingering finish.
