Our 2016 Valentina has just received a Gold Medal and 91 Points from the San Francisco International Wine Competition!
What a great award for this beautiful red blend! According to the SFIWC, receiving a gold medal demonstrates that the wine is exceptional and that it is near the pinnacle of achievement in its category; or that it sets the standard for all other wines of its type. The 2016 Valentina is prominent aromas of fresh cranberry & plum with hints of black tea. The flavors continue the aromas and add cloves and anise. The texture is rich with prominent tannins followed by a long finish.
