A blend of 48% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc.
Desert Wind's signature blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc,
and Merlot embodies our commitment to the "spirit" of classical
Bordeaux red winemaking. Each lot that comprises the Ruah was
personally selected by the winemaker as best showcasing the quality of
fruit from Desert Wind Vineyard. The nose of the wine is intensely
aromatic, with Bing cherry, cinnamon, and toasted walnut in the
forefront. On the palate, flavors of cherry, raspberry, and clove mingle
harmoniously with supple tannins ending in a long finish. Enjoy with a
ride array of foods. Drink now or cellar until 2012.
"Firm in structure, with refined tannins around a sweet, generous core of currant and blackberry fruit, lingering on the long, expressive finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2011 through 2015. 6,875 cases made."
