Talon Winery is returning to our roots with this vintage of Wingspan Red. Our Founder, Glenn Foster originally envisioned the Wingspan Series as a tribute to his love of falconry and birds of prey. That inspiration, coupled with the Bordeaux grape varieties that thrive in the Grand Valley continues to be the impetus for this wine. In past vintages, difficult weather and unseasonably cold, freezing temperatures have limited our access to the varieties of grapes that were the beginnings of Wingspan Red. Now, due to some changes in vineyard conditions and favorable winter temperatures, we’ve returned to the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. These three varieties, crafted using extended maceration, careful attention to press fraction and a focus on smooth tannin instead of harsh brings us back to where we started. Cheers!
