2017 Heritage Reserve
A bordeaux blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in French Oak. The nose of this wine is quite floral with secondary aromas of licorice, sweet spices and red fruits. The palate is soft with plush tannins and a full mouthfeel. Notes of spice, vanilla, chocolate and berries evolve into earthy and leathery tones. The hallmark of this wine is an opulent and decadent texture that is held together by good acidity and ripe tannins.
This wine is worth putting away for a few years and will likely begin to showcase its full potential in 4-5 years.
Suitable to pair with meals ranging from lightly spiced light and dark meats to roasted vegetables and winter stews.
