2014 Painted Fields, Red Blend
This is a smooth-textured and well-balanced wine. It smells a little smoky, but tastes moderately crisp and tannic, with ripe fruit flavors to balance out the tartness.

Popular Hawaiian artist Kelly Sueda created this original label of the vineyards surrounding the winery. His personal interpretations of Hawaii’s many natural wonders have made his work a favorite among art lovers and collectors. Here, Kelly blends observation of Amador’s agriculture with imagination, the same partnership that makes great wine possible. 2013 Painted Fields Ruby black color. Delicate, fruity, creamy aromas and flavors of boysenberry custard, delicate spices, and chocolate to ee with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length Neapolitan gelato, craisin, sweet and peppery spice, and cedar finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak. A supple, chewy red blend with a structure that will shine at the table.
