While our Claret is a red blend crafted in the style of a Bordeaux, our new Diamond Red Blend, is a unique “sky’s the limit” kind of blend, created exclusively by taste with no particular roadmap in mind. Inspired by Scarlet O’Hara of Gone With the Wind, a cinematic masterpiece, a story of hope, survival, and love that transcends life’s most tumultuous events. Her role, at the center of it all, a complicated heroine with a rebellious personality, a woman who left such a lasting impression on audiences that she became an American icon. Like its namesake, Scarlet Label Red Blend is complex, tempestuous, and alluring. It has all the sophistication and refinement of Scarlet O’Hara, but a bold presence and rich, spicy nuances that make it anything but demure. Made from a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine offers true distinction. That’s what makes Scarlet Label Diamond Red Blend poised to be another classic, just like the Scarlet it is named after.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

We are incredibly fortunate to be sourcing our fruit from top-notch vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Lodi and El Dorado, which always produce stellar quality fruit. We wondered what would happen if we took the best selections from these diverse appellations each vintage—the ones that showed the most complexity and character—and blended them together. It takes many tasting trials to arrive at the just the right combination, but you can taste when you’ve created the perfect blend.  2012 is already being called one of the best vintages of the decade. Steady, mild temperatures persisted throughout summer and into fall, creating ideal weather conditions. This helped us achieve rich, deeply concentrated fruit layered with alluring spice notes, good balance, and supple tannins.
