Bright ruby red in color with aromas of dried prunes and blackberries mingled with vanilla and cinnamon and a touch of toast. This nicely concentrated and elegant wine offers well-rounded tannins and a velvety finish.
Pair with pastas, meats, casseroles, cheeses, and steamed vegetables.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
"The 2010 Barrel Reserve 60/40 is that precise blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot respectively, aged for 6 to 8 months in oak. It has a taut, well-defined bouquet of blackberry and raspberry leaf that is efficient, almost clinical. The palate is medium-bodied with sharp, angular tannins but great freshness and focus towards the brisk, citrus finish. Drink 2014-2017. "
