JOLOTAGE RED WINE
Our JOLOTAGE is from multiple lots and varietals. This red wine blend was made by selecting the finest wines in our cellar and blending until we were satisfied it deserved JOLOTAGE name. 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
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 wine has vibrant dark fruit aromas of ripe raspberry, plum & strawberry blending harmoniously with wafts of rose petals and graphite. On the palate, the same dark fruit and hints of leather 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!
