This is the second time this has been made; a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 8% Petite Sirah and 8% Mourvèdre. The blend works nicely, and the wine has a core of sweet black cherry and blue plum fruit. The name Redd (correctly spelled) is the term for a salmon nest, where the eggs are laid. Firm acids and light tannins frame the fruit nicely, with no excessive herbal flavors.
