60% Cabernet Franc delivers intoxicating aromatics of exotic spices, dark cocoa, and a floral perfume. The balance of Merlot pushes the mid-palate and delivers a plush pool of flavors to lose yourself in. This is often a slow wine to take the field, but the 2018 came charging into the game ready to bring home the gold. Pure deliciousness with practically perfect form and another winner from Bevan!
A 50/50 split of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2018 Sugarloaf Mountain Proprietary Red just pops on the nose with its blue fruits, wildflowers, violets, and wild strawberry aromas and flavors. Juicy and full-bodied, it has beautiful fruit, a plush, sexy texture, and notable freshness and purity.
