Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A blend of Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has aromas and flavors of plum, blackberry and black currant with a hint of spice. The dark fruits and spice flavors offers a rich, round mouthfeel with a long finish. The Federalist Honest Red Blend pays homage to one of the most highly regarded American President's of all time, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln's accomplishments are numerous, though he is probably best known for emancipating the slaves, preserving the union following the Civil War and sadly being assassinated while in office. His legacy, while not tied directly to the Federalist, is worthy of our respect, honestly.

"Editors' Choice" Full bodied and stuffed with fresh fruit flavors, this dry wine made from grapes from three North Coast California counties smells and tastes like dark grape juice and ripe black cherries. The texture is lively but smooth, and the wine has a light tangy quality to balance its richness.

Simple, with a lingering sweetness trying to add polish to the modest, slightly bitter cherry and herb flavors. Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made.
