Winemaker's Notes:

Let Elios Red transport you to the sunny Mediterranean. The name Elios comes from Helios, the personification of the sun in Greek mythology. Elios wines are a blend of traditional grapes such as Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Mediterranean grapes that are reminiscent of the sun soaked beaches, deliciously fresh foods, and relaxed culture of the Mediterranean.

Blend:
40% Agiorgitiko – for softness and blackberry notes
30% Cabernet Sauvignon – for structure and hints of chocolate
30% Syrah – for richness and a hint of baking spice

My Notes:
