Amplify 2020 Mixtape Red Santa Barbara


Santa Barbara, California, Merlot, Grenache Blanc, Refosco, Sangiovese, Tempranillo

Out of stock


The Grenache Blanc and Refosco are pressed directly with only a couple hours skin contact, while the other varieties are fermented to dryness on their skins. All of the red fermentations saw a portion of stem inclusion, typically about 1/3, which really lifted the wine’s freshness and spice notes. Stylistically, this is in the same vein as previous years- a lighter, chillable red that possesses a lot of aromatic and textural depth despite its relatively limpid color. The higher portion of Merlot in this year’s blend has provided a touch more backbone, while the inclusion of Sangiovese adds more liveliness and succulent red fruit notes.
