Description

Blend
61% Merlot
25% Cab. Sauv.
8% Cab. Franc
6% Malbec

Over the past 25 years, we’ve experimented with blending. A lot. And what we discovered with full-bodied red wines is that often the sum is greater than the parts. The sum in this blend is: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. And the fun part is that the power of blending often over delivers in quality. All our winemaking decisions get the same attention to detail as the Merlot Cabernet does. And the results show in every bottle. On that, you have our word.
