The Art of the Blend

Redline is almost here. It's an artful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Petite Syrah and Zinfandel. You'll find it to be amazing in your glass.

Our Redline blend is always popular. So popular, that we’re essentially sold out of our last vintage.

Adobe Road Winery owner Kevin Buckler and winemaker Garrett Martin got to work. They wanted to create a blend that was of extremely high quality but at a reasonable price point, something that would be great to purchase and open up with a weeknight dinner but would deliver like a weekend wine.

Redline is an awesome California red blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, two varietals that aren’t often matched together, along with Syrah, Petite Syrah and Malbec. What you get in the glass is a super approachable, big blend with cherry and dark berry fruits combined a hint of spiciness, aged in toasty French oak with enough tannin and acidity to hold together and match up with a variety foods. Plus it’s fresh. We’ll bottle our brand new 2016 Redline -- and get it ready for your glass -- later this month.

“I really enjoy working on Redline and putting forward Kevin’s vision of delivering a great wine to our Adobe Road family,” Martin says. “This blend really showcases the quality and diversity of Sonoma and Napa fruit.”

Look for our new Redline out soon along with a brand new bottle design that is a shout out to our sportscar legacy.

Pairing ideas: Tuesday night pizza, grilled meats like steak or lamb or a red pasta dish
