Wine Making Notes:
The 2015 – SKYHARP CELLARS- Delta Reserve is about pulling the best grape blends from the delta and Sacramento Valley. This Red Blend features a base of Tempranillo grapes grown in Lodi, Ca. Tempranillo smells of smoky plum flavor. The feature then is blended with the spice of Teroldego. The Zinfandel gives hints of pepper and showcases what Lodi is famous for. Petite Sirah rounds it out by adding color and tannins.
2015 blend was about differentiation. We knew we wanted to start with the bold Tempranillo and Teroldego grapes and found a grower with the right soil, water and crop yield. The season had little surprises so the crop came off with the quality we were seeking. The Zinfandel and Petite Sirah were a bit more finicky with constant crop monitoring and dropping fruit as needed to deliver on the yields.
