The Paring Red Blend 2018
Utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and dark notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined, a study in elegance.
The 2018 Red Wine checks in as 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot. It’s a medium to full-bodied, ripe, rounded, nicely concentrated blend with lots of ripe currant and blackberry fruits as well as an herbal kick in its tobacco, earth, and ripe herb aromas and flavors. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years or more.
