The wine is bone dry and possesses an elegance and finesse found in many high-end European wines. This exceptional wine was made in limited quantities and exhibits the care and passion put into our winemaking at JOLO Winery & Vineyards.
COMMENTS FROM THE WINE MAKER:
JOLOTAGE is the premium red wine blend of JOLO Vineyards. The composition will be different each release as we select the finest wines available in our cellar and blend and trial until we achieve the perfect balance, taste, and elegance that is deserving of the JOLOTAGE name.
This supple, medium to full bodied, complex with tantalizing aromas of dark fruit, mocha and spices. On the palate, the same dark fruit and hints of cedar and minerality complement the well integrated tannins, providing an elegant and lasting finish. This wine can be paired with meats, game, hearty stews or to just be enjoyed on its own. This wine, properly cellared, will age gracefully for a decade or more. Enjoy!
