Loomis Family Vineyards 2012 "Ember" Red Blend, Napa Valley, CA



"The challenge was to see if it was possible to grow Rhone varietals at elevation in the middle of an oak forest in Napa Valley." -Owner Jeff Loomis

Loomis Family Vineyards is the only true Rhone-style producer in Napa Valley. Jeff's love for Rhone was inspired by his study abroad in the region, including a bike tour through Chateauneuf du Pape. After their first rosé placed in the top 20 of 174 entrants in the San Francisco Chronicle's Rosé tasting contest, he knew he had something pretty special. From there, the Ember Red Blend was born. Grab a few bottles of the Ember Red for your holiday celebrations - your family will thank you!


Angel Bonus Offer:

The Notes: This Rhone-style red blend opens with aromas of juicy red fruit and vanilla spice. The mouth comes alive with fresh cherries, pomegranates, currants, spice, vanilla extract, black pepper and earth. The finish leaves long lasting flavors of Herbs de Provence.
