Can I just say that I love this wine? From a winemaker’s perspective, blends are just plain fun to make. This is the only blend that we produce so it’s my one chance to really dig in to the different expressions of both the varietals and the growing regions. I always start with the texture. This wine should be fruit forward with a very explosive front palate. It’s supposed to seduce! The Merlot drives that first impression with bright red fruit and a jammy sweetness. The Cabernet Sauvignon surrounds the other varietals and it’s what makes the wine serious. The Syrah and Cabernet Franc add weight and texture that give the wine a rich mid-palate and some complexity. The Petit Verdot is new this year! I like the mildly earthy component that brings a new layer to the experience. Enjoy this blend with whatever you’re whipping up in the kitchen. It plays well with everything! ~ Michael Baldacci
This cab dominant blend is a great every day drinker to pair with your favorite pizza, rich risotto or a grilled portabella mushroom!
