Winemaker's Notes

Red rose and garnet introduces this elegant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot with an intriguing weave of spices, bringing to mind sandalwood and cardamom, this graceful wine shows lovely notes of ripe plum and preserved cherries. The entry to the palate is soft, but well structured with deep flavors of plum and cherry, which are accompanied by nuances of dark chocolate and toasty oak. The finish is an unhurried memory of this delightful mix of tastes and flavors. 92/100 Wine & Spirits
