2009 Art Bus Red
Art Bus Red celebrates the Art of winemaking. I have often compared the Art of blending to painting, like having more colors on my palette and palate! From the minute you pull the cork, the aromas are deep, rich, and enticing.
I have often compared the art of blending to painting, like having more colors on my palette and palate! In both, the artist uses different hues (flavors) to create something truly unique and delicious. This is a rich layered blend. I sought to capture the thrill of art as a tribute to artists everywhere; strive to create beauty. This is also our charity bottling where 15% of our sales go to Heifer International, helping families all over the world.
Our second release of this unique blend. The aromas are open, deep, rich, and enticing of black cherry and ripe plums, with notes of graham crackers, cinnamon, cedar, and smoked meats. In the mouth the flavors are bursting with ripe fruit, crushed blackberry, deep meaty tones, and a touch of sweet toasty French oak. Flavors persist several minutes. This is a big, intense, mouth coating wine. I love the layered flavors, mid palate texture and silky yet big balance of this blend. It’s unusual but delicious! While tasty now, this is a wine that is also cellar-worthy, easily 10-15 years.
