Twice a year, the sun crosses the celestial equator, resulting in a day and night of equal length. These occurrences are referred to as â€œequinoxes,â€ 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 Bonterraâ€™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.
