Wine from Red Phoenix

Filter 

Bill Leigon created the name Red Phoenix. Leigon was inspired and moved by the courage and resilience of the people in Napa Valley in the face of, not only the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, but also the horrific fires in Napa Valley. In many cases people have had to rebuild their lives from the literal ashes of fires and disease. Despite seemingly insurmountable crisis, people have risen to the occasion, met every challenge and emerged stronger. Red Phoenix is a tribute to Hope that fills the human spirit and in the end, enabled the creation of a beautiful wine- Red Phoenix.

Red Phoenix Red Blend 2018

Red Phoenix Red Blend is made from 57% Zinfandel; 14% Petit Verdot; 12% Petite Sirah; 7% Syrah; 5% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

With European origins dating back centuries ago, blended red wine is once again having its day in the sun. Red Phoenix Red Wine Blend represents the essence of this well-deserved resurgence. Unbound by a single varietal or appellation, and given more flexibility with vintages, winemaker Joseph Smith skillfully showcases six distinct varietals in this luscious and layered wine. Unlike traditional red blends, Red Phoenix is both barrel aged and barrel fermented, adding structure, balance, and a new dimension to a wine that is rooted in tradition and soars on the palate.

APPELLATION

75% of the fruit is coming from Lodi AVA, while the remaining 25% are Napa Valley AVA's fruits. 

Coastal aromas of fresh fruit and lush florals coupled with a deep ruby color intrigue the senses. Bright, bold flavors of cherry and blackberry ascend on the palate while showcasing subtle, smooth tannins. The wine crescendos with anise, chocolate and toasted oak, offering depth and complexity, as velvety flavors continue to linger and evolve throughout the long, rich finish.
