Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A blend of Tempranillo 33%, Zinfandel 28%, Grenache 15%, Petit Sirah 13%, Carignan 11%. The The Skyline Artisan Red is a red wine blended from selected lots of wine primarily from the sandy soils of Lodi. We look to create a wine with a generous fruit profile, soft tannins and ample spice. This blend pairs two traditional Spanish varieties, Tempranillo and Grenache, with Zinfandel and a touch of Petit Sirah & Carignan. The wines are fermented separately, raised in oak and then finished in stainless steel, highlighting their richness and preserving their focus. As is true with every vintage, intensive blending creates an Artisan wine crafted for immediate accessibility and enjoyment."

    A fantastic little "bistro" style, everyday drinker. I have long admired the "Skyline" label they make at Thomas Fogarty and the quality just keeps getting better and better. Winemaker, Nathan Kandler, puts top notch fruit and a lot of care into these wines and it really shows. The blend is centered around Tempranillo and Zinfandel with a dash of Petite Sirah and Carignane. As you might expect its medium to full bodied, dark red fruited, some nice earthy elements. Nicely refined tannins mean its approachable from the get-go but also has enough structure to pair with heartier foods. A great wine for when you're firing up the grill this summer...killer burger wine. Serious value given the quality in the bottle!

    This is my new favorite easy-drinking red in the store! What a fantastic blend from Nathan Kandler, one of the top winemakers in California. The team at Thomas Fogarty knows how to find great fruit fromlegendary vineyards in the area and they blended it seemlessly into this under-$15 beauty. This is going to be your ultimate BBQ wine this Summer, but has enough body and interest to really work for any season. Fans of the Sobon Rocky Top and Marietta Lot wines should definitely give this one a go.
