tasting notes

Inspired by the right bank blends of Bordeaux, this blend is built on the silky suppleness of Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure, complexity and richness. Red fruits dominate the aromatic profile of this wine, with pomegranate, kirsch, and strawberry pie layered with notes of brioche. Intriguing hints of blood orange zest, sweet bay laurel, smoldering embers and dried tobacco expand the bouquet. Silky tannins delight the senses, and bright acidity lifts and lengthens this beautiful wine. [ download pdf ]
