Winemaker's Notes

This wine is from Bordeaux's left bank which typically means the primary grape is Cabernet Sauvignon. However, this 2005 vintage has a bit more Merlot in the blend. This wine holds a deep garnet color with aromas of bright cherry, plum and a bit of spice. Delicious fruit flavors mirror on the palate with soft spices. It's round, with mild tannins, and a silky, inviting mouthfeel. A tasty Bordeaux blend: 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.
