Winemaker Betsy Spann Notes
Our love affair with the wines of Bordeaux dates back to the 1970s and it is with these wines in mind that we crush the classic Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon gives this wine lovely red currant flavors and backbone, Merlot adds a red cherry aroma and taste along with velvety smoothness, Cabernet Franc adds raspberry and and wild flower aromas as well as richness on the palate while Petit Verdot gives it structure for all of these flavors to stand up in your mouth. 28 months of aging in 25% new and 75% older French oak barrels has added a nutmeg note to the aroma, nutmeg and cinnamon notes to the finish and seamless finesse to the overall taste. This wine is meant for near-t ...more... erm enjoyment, but will also gain in complexity over the next 3 to 5 years with proper cellaring.
