Bordeaux Red Blends
from Napa Valley, California
A blend of varietals and vineyard sites with a variety of soils, clones and rootstocks bring enormous complexity to this wine. On the nose, cassis, dark cherry, plum and blackberry mingle with notes of white pepper, sage, cinnamon, cedar and dark chocolate. Fresh, juicy fruit flavors coat the palate, with sweet spices skirting the edges. A streak of bright acidity lifts the mid palate while fine tannins create weight and a smooth, silky texture. A dazzling, multi-dimensional Napa Valley red.
Blend: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot
