2016 Uno Cinquanta "Super Tuscan" Blend

Regular price $40.00

Uno Cinquanta translates to “One Fifty” in Italian. The name of this Super Tuscan Blend is an homage to Highway 150 that travels through the heart of Ojai and is home to both our Tasting Room near downtown Ojai and our Winery facility in Upper Ojai. The Cabernet Sauvignon (Coquelicot vineyard) offers a vibrant texture with a hearty resistance while the Merlot (Coquelicot Vineyard) smooths out the racy red fruit flavors of the Sangiovese (White Hawk Vineyard).
