Another beautifully flavorful Bordeaux Blend is featured in our March long Spring Sale! Reward yourself with a 95 POINT wine that earned TWO DOUBLE GOLD and TWO GOLD MEDALS during competitions in 2018, 2019 and 2020…a GREAT showing across multiple competitions and multiple years! This lovely 2015 Bordeaux Blend is created with our four clones of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%) and our French clones of Petit Verdot and Malbec (12% each). This blend has continued to be a wonderfully complex wine that won the Sonoma County Harvest Fair Sweepstakes Red Wine in 2013!
Rich, enticing aromatics of toasty vanillin oak mingle with vine-ripened blackberries and a kiss of coconut. A silken entry exposes the luscious blend of currant, blackberry, and dark cherry with hints of raspberry and blueberry. Cedary oak notes caress the layers of fruit as the long finish exposes traces of cocoa and espresso. The oak and tannic backbone supports the flavors, making this wine an excellent candidate for cellaring—but the wine is so delicious now it may be hard to wait to drink it. Updated 3/14/2020.

Review – Ken’s Wine Guide
“This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend opens with black currant and oak blend with a hint black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a black currant and mineral blend with notes of oak, plum and spice. I also detected hints of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a while. This blend would pair nicely with thin sliced beef brisket.” Review date: August 4, 2018
