2017 Red Blend

Certified Sustainable

La Playa wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

Notes from the Winemaker

A rich maroon color. On the nose, ripe strawberry with hints of black pepper. It has great balance between structure and flavor with a light approachable palate.
