Bevan Tench EE 2016
Winemaker Notes :
The 2016 EE Red Blend combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. It has a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than ever before making it even livelier than the 2013 EE, a vintage which produced some of our most massive wines. The Cabernet Franc provides an amazing violet quality and the Merlot adds a little extra richness. The result is luxurious, intense dark fruit.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot
