Kukkula in the red nv

in the red

in the red is a Syrah dom­i­nant blend with Caber­net Sauvignon.

Vivid ruby-red. High-pitched aro­mas of fresh red and dark berries, with a sexy flo­ral pastille nuance emerg­ing as the wine opens with air. Juicy and pre­cise on the palate, offer­ing intense black rasp­ber­ry and vio­let pastille fla­vors and a hint of spice­cake. Made in an ele­gant style, show­ing a seam­less tex­ture and fine-grained tan­nins that build slow­ly on the very long, spice-tinged finish.

An apt name for a wine because of how much cap­i­tal it takes to run this business!

Enjoy this library wine while it lasts. Peri­od­i­cal­ly, we will bring in the red back as vin­tages allow. 2019 will be the next vin­tage of this blend but won’t be released until 2022.
