Winemaker Kirkland Winemaker Notes
Napa Valley has emerged as one of the finest sites in the world for the production of the red Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Merlot adds soft, sweet red fruit notes and supple tannins. The firmly tannic Cabernet Sauvignon brings deep colors and black currant cassis notes. The higher acidity of Cabernet Franc completes the blend with sweet tobacco and earthy character. The combination of the three varietals adds a complexity to the wine that a single varietal rarely achieves. Ready to drink now or cellar for 3-5 years.
