2016 Gold Dust Red

2016 Gold Dust Red

Our 2016 release of French Bar Gold Dust Red blend brings
together fruit from our family’s Rock Ridge Vineyard site and is
shaped under the care of winemaker Ted Coleman, and
produced at our winery in Sonoma County. French Bar wines are
sustainably farmed and subject to the “Lodi Rules” for sustainable
certified green wine growing standards.

Tasting Notes
Lively, with hints of spice, raspberry and black cherry flavors, our
Gold Dust Red blend is intense and aromatic with a refined oak
nuance. A blend of Petit Verdot and Teroldego the wine is both
full bodied and fruit forward, with a long lingering finish.
