2015 Painted Rock Red Icon

Brand Presentation


This wine invites you in with rich aromas of blackberry, dark plums, cassis and sweet spices. The palate, with
its velvety tannins and high acid, offers bold and juicy black fruit layered with pepper, baking spices, vanilla
and chocolate. Those who cellar this wine will be rewarded.

The 2015 vintage kicked off with a warmer than average spring combined with minimal
precipitation, leading to early bud break and flowering. The rest of the growing season followed
suit with record breaking temperatures. Canopy management was key for Painted Rock in 2015.
While harvest happened significantly earlier than normal though out the valley due to spiking
sugar levels, we were able to forestall ripening long enough to ensure our phenolic ripeness
would have time to develop and be in balance with our sugar levels. This wine was aged for 18 months in
30% new French oak. This vintage is a blend of 45% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec 11% Petit
Verdot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon.

2014/2015 InterVin International “Winery of the Year”
94 POINTS - "A commanding, richly confident and expertly sculpted red blend. It's not cheap, but put
"Napa" on the label and there's no telling how much higher a price this would fetch. A merlot-led
Bordeaux-style blend, it's smooth and ripe, with succulent cassis leading the fruit parade. Then savoury
notes of tobacco and cedar chime in along with dark chocolate, smoke and spice. Approachable now, it
should evolve gracefully for at least a dozen years. Steak would be grand." - Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and
