This truly stunning blend earns our highest rating. It’s made from all six Bordeaux varietal grapes, leading with Cabernet Franc (50%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) rounded out with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenere sourced from premium sites in the Columbia Valley.
Supple and lithe, this wine is defined by its impeccable structure and pure balance. Focused, powerful and elegant on the palate, displaying a mosaic of rich black and red fruit, mocha, crushed rock, herbs and tobacco. The flavors echo on the long, rewarding finish sustained with powdery, gripping tannins. This luxe red wine drinks like many that typically sell in the $50-$70 range.
