Twice a year, the sun crosses the celestial equator, resulting in a day and night of equal length. These occurrences are referred to as “equinoxes,” and the twin lengths of day and night when they occur are among the many ways nature demonstrates balance.
At Bonterra, we strive for a similar natural balance in our organic vineyards and in our wines. Equinox Red celebrates this vision. Leading with Merlot, one of Bonterra’s most acclaimed varietals, the wine is also complemented with grapes carefully selected to add complexity. One of the more prominent of these is Petit Sirah, which adds gorgeous color and a rich, rustic element to the blend. The resulting wine offers supple notes of juicy red and black fruit matched with a patina of intriguing spice, herb and oak tones.
