"Lola Kay 2013 Proprietary Red Wine is a vivacious California red blend composed of handcrafted Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot.
The 2013 is made in a classically sructured, food-friendly style and it shows remarkable complexity and delight. Indeeed, sweet, heavy handed wines are popular in the red blend category. But not here at LK. Instead we make understated elegance our singular goal. Why? Because we are serious about making ne wine, and we know you want something real
The heart and soul of Lola Kay Red is the fragrant aromatic delight of Cabernet Franc - one of the world’s most elegant wine grape varieties.That’s where we start. Then, to add power, depth and stylish intrigue we acquire small batches of eclectic Bordeaux red varietals to bring the wine into delicious harmony. It’s the blender’s art, and it’s all about balance.
California’s 2013 grape growing season was near-perfect. Warm days and cool nights prevailed over and over again all summer long, making for splendid ripeness and complexity. This LK shows the vintage at its best and we worked hard to make it as rewarding a wine as possible. That being said, given the wine’s considerable depth, let it sit in the glass a few minutes before serving - to open up its lusty avors and aromatics." - Winery
