Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Desert Wind Ruah is comprised of three classical Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot) that are seamlessly co-mingled to yield a wine with structure and finesse. Our 2006 Ruah is fruit-centric with just enough oak to create a spicy, toasty finish. Enjoy this wine with an array of foods or by itself.
