Prince Michel Vineyards releases a reserve red in only the finest of vintage years. 1998 was such a year, boasting warm, dry ripening conditions which allowed the grapes to reach optimal maturity. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is a testament to our wonderful 1998 growing season - a season that was blesed by mother nature from early spring on.
The softness of the Merlot lends this wine to a typical Merlot nose of elegant varietal fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon provides strength and structure needed to make this a longer aging wine. The Cabernet Franc completes the structure and enhances the fruit character of this unique blend.
