Balanced on a knife edge, this refined Bordeaux style blend is a study in elegance. Candied blackberries meet licorice and wet earth in a dance between sweet and savory on nose and the full-bodied palate.

The 2016 Red Wine checks in as a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Brilliant notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, damp earth, cedary herbs, and graphite all emerge from this concentrated, remarkably pure, elegant Bordeaux blend hat has building tannins and a great, great finish. It tastes like it costs three times the price.
