An eclectic, non-traditional blend, Recess Red is Adelaida’s signature table wine, representing good value in a medium bodied “daily drinker”. Utilizing estate grown grapes from the challenging terrain of our mountain vineyards, the cool climate 2010 vintage emphasizes bright aromatics and purity of fruit flavors. Each variety is handled separately and the blend represents the optimum balance of diverse flavors.
The choices seek to give definition to four main elements: aromatics, mid palate (weight and texture), homogeneous flavors (the whole is better than the individual parts), and a well defined finish. With 10 grapes, the predominant varieties form the core of the wine’s personality: (Syrah (mid palate), Counoise (crisp finish) and Cabernet Sauvignon (fruit and structure), while other varieties add nuance and focus. Drink now through 2015.
