2015 Les Vents d'Anges Rives Red
This table wine is the lightest of Keswick Vineyards' red line-up. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with a portion of estate grown Syrah, the wine remains fruit forward with a slight hint of spice. The nose has an abundance of red fruits and crushed berries. The palate reflects the higher acidity and cherry notes.
Les Vents d'Anges, "the wind of angels" is a tribute to Genevieve de Beaubien, M.D., the beloved sister of Al Schornberg, owner of Keswick Vineyards. Pronounced the same as vendanges or "harvest", the wines bottled under this label are typically fruit forward and delicate, sometimes with a hint of sweetness and not meant for aging. Rives Red serves also as a tribute to the Rives family who owned the land in the 1800's and commissioned the building of Edgewood Estate, the crown jewel of Keswick Vineyards. Amelie Rives lived in Castle Hill and has another label in her honor.
