Bordeaux-Inspired Tasting Bundle
TRY 3 BORDEAUX-INSPIRED BLENDS
Take home three of our Bordeaux-inspired favorites and taste along with Director of Winemaking Jason Gorski.
Our 2017 D2 offers abundant dried cranberry and raspberry aromas surging from the glass, with intertwined darker fruits notes of cassis, blueberry, and blackberry. Delicately balanced oak influence contributes cocoa and coffee bean notes while remaining completely respectful of the fruit. This appealing wine is vibrant and extraordinarily fresh on the palate, with persistent fruit flavors of pomegranate and blueberry. Understated and subtle tannin provides welcome structure, while excellent early integration offers accessibility, generosity and abundant pleasure despite the wine’s youth.
2018 Chaleur Blanc:
This 2018 Chaleur Blanc shows magnificent balance throughout, with aromas of baked pie crust, grapefruit and citrus oil. On the palate, this symmetry continues, with the fruit contributing grapefruit, golden hay, thyme and tarragon, with cooperage supplying well integrated eucalyptus, forest floor and mocha. Six months of elevage on the lees with weekly battonage contributes a welcome roundness that harmonizes with the brilliant acidity of this wine, all carried on a long, dry finish.
2017 Four Flags:
Our 2017 Four Flags shows elegance and restraint on the nose. Initially tightly wound and impenetrable, fruit begins to emerge- blue and red aromas of cranberry, blueberries and anise, with alluring black tea, gravel and cedar adding refinement. Absolutely enclosed by generous oak, ample fruit seeps through, delivering the savory balance Red Mountain typifies. A long finish carried by persistent and building tannin offers great promise for the future.
