GIFFT BY KATHY LEE GIFFORD 2011 PROPRIETARY RED ESTATE MONTEREY COUNTY 750mL

The grapes were destemmed, crushed, and fermented in small lots in open top fermenters. To add complexity and retain character, each variety was fermented separately. During the blending process just prior to bottling, the proportion of each varietal was chosen to accentuate the richness of flavor and maximize depth, complexity, mouthfeel and finish. The addition of a small amount of Muscat Canelli and Riesling, which are white wine grapes, may seem a little odd but it is actually a common practice in red blends to bring out the mid-palate and enhance the fruitiness.

The 2011 vintage of Gifft Red Blend is comprised of 10 different varietals, blended to showcase the fully-integrated bright fruit character of each component. With aromas of blackberry and ripe plum and loads of black fruit on the palate, it exhibits a smooth, silky mouthfeel on a mediumbodied, soft round frame with a touch of vanilla and sweet oak.
