2017 Classic Four

  • A Bordeaux-style blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot & 3% Malbec.
  • 20 months in French oak barrels, 10% new.

Tasting Notes:
Bursting with red and black cherry aromas and bright red cherry flavors, this medium-bodied Bordeaux-style blend is delightfully rich and silky-smooth.  A light touch of oak adds complexity without hiding any of the effusive fruit. It’s a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend that is eminently enjoyable either with or without food.

Winemaker’s Notes:   
Our goal was to make a Bordeaux-style blend that is richly flavored, mouth-filling and smooth, with little to no disagreeable tannic feel.  The high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon gives this wine its richness, while the Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec spread the favors out in your mouth and hide the drying tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
