2015 Thick Skinned Red Mountain

Standing apart from the surrounding hills, Red Mountain’s southwest-facing slopes encourage the grapes to ripen and develop their deep, dark skin color. It is during the fermentation process that these thick, sun-ripened skins reveal the distinctly lush textures and flavors locked inside. A Bordeaux-style blend of bold character, Thick Skinned represents everything that Red Mountain has to offer.
