Description

Our 2015 Bordeaux-style blend is anchored in 92% Merlot from Block 8 of our Indian Springs Ranch hillside vineyard and blended with 5% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.  This complex, multilayered wine opens with flavors of fresh red plum followed with delicate layers of black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and dried herbs.  Oak notes include hints of cedar, tobacco and leather.  Aged in French and American oak, the firm tannins and complex fruit make this wine a perfect fit with a tender prime rib or steaks.
