2017 Langtry Old Soldier Road Proprietary Red Wine

The Tephra Ridge Old Solider Road blend shows dark characteristics of dried fruit, black currant, fig, cocoa and violets. This medium plus bodied wine boosts notes of dried flowers and baking spices on the palate.

WE 93 Points (Editors’ Choice): This concentrated and complex wine is full bodied and moderately tannic. It practically explodes with dramatic oak, earth and tobacco aromas before deep flavors of beef jus, new leather, black pepper and black cherry flood the palate. Editors’ Choice. —J.G.

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes
Made from a combination of grapes on the steep, 35-acre Tephra Ridge Vineyard. Tephra (“ash” in Greek) is rock ejected by volcanic eruption. This historic vineyard is located at the north foothill of Howell Mountain. Its thin, gravelly loam and volcanic soils typify the finest Bordeaux variety sites, as do its climate, topography and vegetation – fir, madrone, black oak and ponderosa pine – yielding a rustic fruit profile.
