Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Tempranillo delivers tobacco notes which are complimented by the rich depth of the Barbera. There is a fruitiness on the front end with hints of dark cherry and licorice.
Vineyard Notes
Barbera (55%) is the foundation of this years blend and comes to us from the Rancho Victoria Vineyard in Plymouth. Tempranillo (45%) is sourced from the Cave City Vineyard in Angels Camp, and rounds out the 2017 Hovey C² Red blend.
Winemaker Notes
The story behind C²: Chuck Hovey's mastery of both the art and science of wine-making are what set Hovey wines apart, and one of the reasons he loved the story behind the Hovey Tasting Room. The building was the original home of Albert Michelson who won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on measuring the speed of light (he discovered the “C²” in Einstein’s E=MC²).
Food Pairing Notes
The 2017 Hovey C² Red blend is a versatile wine that pairs well with everything from pizza and pasta to steaks and salads.
