Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The lovely brick red color of this wine is a sign of extended prerelease aging in barrel and bottle. The nose reveals subtle plum, cedar, cinnamon, and leather, and the palate adds to these a rich mocha flavor.

Winemaker Notes
Blended wines seem to have an unwarranted bad reputation. This is unfortunate as some of the most respected wines from Old World wine growing regions are routinely blended. The reason is simple. Some varieties taste better when balanced by others. For example, Cabernet Sauvignon wine on its own often has a great beginning and a great end, but lacks a great middle. Merlot, on the other hand, is the exact opposite and tends to have a wonderful mid palate. When you put the two together, you create a wine that is enjoyable from start to finish. Our 2013 Archival is a carefully blended mix of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The lovely brick red color of this wine is a sign of extended prerelease aging in barrel and bottle. The nose shows subtle aromas of plum, cedar, cinnamon, and leather while the palate shows these same characteristics in addition to a rich mocha flavor. Serving recommendations: 64-68°F
