2015 Red Dirt Red, Sonoma Valley
This year’s growing season was filled with warm days and cool breezes that allowed for beautiful development of all the varieties that make up this complex and inviting blend. Our 2015 vintage presents a true expression of the Kunde Estate terroir. Each lot was treated individually according to the demands of the specific varietal, then fermented separately. Following 23 months of barrel aging in French and American oak (31% new) in our caves. With each varietal barreled separately, our winemaking team crafted the delicious blend and bottled the wine September 6, 2017.
“Red Dirt Red is a Kunde Winery house favorite! There are distinct flavor profiles produced from the varied slopes and exposures of the Kunde Estate. This year’s blend is special with the Zinfandel, Syrah and Barbera providing a rich foundation of cherry, plum and a touch licorice. A fantastic food wine that pairs well with several types of dishes, but can easily be enjoyed on its own!”
