“The 2015 Red Wine is the Bordeaux blend of the estate and is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot, all from declassified Jonata lots. Its deep, inky purple color is followed by a rich, powerful wine that’s loaded with notions of blackcurrants, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and crushed rocks. With background oak, full body, ripe yet present tannins, and a great finish, it’s going to keep for at least 7-8 years.”

“The 2015 Red is supple, fruity and delicious, all of which make it a good q choice for informal drinking over the next years. Floral/spice notes add brightness, while silky tannins wrap around the fruit nicely. In 2015, the
Red is not quite the overachiever it can, but it is still tasty.”

Winemaker’s Notes: A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined Paring Red. A study in elegance.
