We produce the Coble Ranch Blend only in the most exceptional of vintages; and the proprietary winemaker's blend in this bottle showcases the best of our vineyard. While the exact blend changes each time this wine is produced, it always comprises a barrel selection of our red wines, designed to evoke the distinctive terroir of our vineyard.
This young and boisterous 65% Petite Sirah, 20% Tempranillo, 9% Zinfandel, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon blend captures your attention immediately with its boldness and energy. This young red blend delivers a fruit forwardness complemented by waning tannins and rustic undertones.
The Coble Ranch Blend was sourced from our estate vineyard. Once all of the wine is fermented in small lots and barrel-aged a bit, we take the very best barrel selection of each variety and blend it into our Coble Ranch blend. Aging total 16 months in previously used French oak. The Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon provide the structure and backbone of this wine, while the Zinfandel and Tempranillo bring out more fruit-forward characteristics. This wine is meant exemplify the 2018 vintage, the vineyard and our terroir.
