Longboard Point Break Red
A Regional Blend - A wine we put together from the vineyards lots of Syrah, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Just as a Point Break delivers a consistent wave surfers can rely on, so this wine delivers layers of aromas and flavors to satisfy your palate.
A Point Break (as distinct from a Beach Break) offers surfers a unique experience because it focuses the energy of prevailing swells (often from a few directions) into a single wave with a predictable and powerful path. Similarly, this wine focuses the influences of a few red varieties (Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Zinfandel) and seamlessly integrates them into an expression of aromas and flavors that reflect the climate of Sonoma. This wine was born as an experiment a few years back and has slowly evolved, taking on the role of a solid member of the family who is never too flashy yet always delivers. While differences in flavors and aromas between vintages are to be expected, the theme remains the same; a lush entry with a medium-full body and a very lengthy finish with just enough acidity to make it a great pairing for locally sourced food.
