Equinox Red

Equinox Red 2017Category Icon

Twice a year, the sun crosses the celestial equator, resulting in a day and night of equal length. These occurrences are referred to as “equinoxes,” and the twin lengths of day and night when they occur are among the many ways nature demonstrates balance. At Bonterra, we strive for a similar natural balance in our organic vineyards and in our wines. Equinox Red celebrates this vision, offering supple notes of juicy red and black fruit matched with a patina of intriguing spice, herb and oak tones.

 

Appellation: California Alcohol: 13.7%

“This is our newest addition to the Bonterra red wine lineup. We love crafting single varietal expressions, but we had a blast putting this blend together. Much like cooking, with this blend we were able to add our favorite “ingredients” in the form of our best organic varietals. I hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed crafting it!”

A firm texture and big, earthy black-fruit flavors give this full-bodied wine plenty of presence. It tastes of blackberry, cranberry and dark chocolate while it feels tannic and grippy on the palate. Merlot and Petite Sirah are the two main components in the blend.
