Winemaker's Notes:

This year's Rivers Red is a Bordeaux blend with a Rhone twist. The preponderance of Merlot creates a sense of clarity and elegance. The Cabernet Franc adds high-toned, complex aromatics. The dollop of Syrah provides weight and depth. This is a beautiful wine with highlights that include berries, cola, strawberries, blueberries and a palate that is soft, juicy and balanced.

Blend: 55% Merlot, 24% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Franc
