Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Varietal Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
"This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc exhibits a dark ruby color, seductive, upfront aromas of raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of caramel and wood spice, and a soft, round, attractive style. It is ideal for drinking over the next 7-10 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Structured and firm, with tannins and some element of wood. There is sweetness here, flavors of licorice, blackberry juice and lively sweetness. The whole wine is dominated by delicious berry fruits."
"Good medium ruby. Black cherry and licorice on the nose, lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet and solid on the palate, with slightly medicinal flavors of black cherry, plum, licorice and chocolate. This could use a bit more pliancy and flesh but nonetheless comes across as more elegant than the wines made here earlier this decade. Range: 86-89"
