Purple Hands Wines After Five Wine Co. Serata Blend 2019

Aromas of Turkish delight, cherry, plums, licorice and herbs. A very unique single vineyard wine that is a blend of Shiraz, Montepulciano and Aglianico. When we planted these two Italian varieties this blend was part of the reason. The name Serata is Italian for having a pleasant evening with friends, this does suit the label and idea of enjoying this wine After Five. I feel this is our most complex and interesting wine both in aroma and palate. The Shiraz is around half of the blend and gives depth and concentration with the Montepulciano adds fruit intensity with the Aglianico adding tannin and length.
