39% Cabernet Sauvignon 33% Merlot 22% Malbec 3% Cabernet Franc 3% Petit Verdot

A stunning expression of our most complex Bordeaux blend...this wine is composed of all hillside vineyards which helps to keep berry size down and concentration strong. The sites are south and southeast facing for the early ripening varietals. | Aperture Cellars

The 2017 Red Blend demonstrates a rich concentration of deep red fruits. Ripe currants combined with fresh raspberries and cherries, carrying with them a bright acidity. Laying in delicate violets and subtle tobacco the wine extends with a long, spice-driven finish. The tannins are well integrated and the texture elegant and silky, making this a wine that is drinking beautifully now and will continue to reward with cellaring. | Jesse Katz, Aperture Cellars

The nose offers vibrant berry scents with accents of charcuterie, mint chocolate, cigar wrapper, violets and pencil shavings aromas, and the palate is powerful but featherweight, silky and fresh with a very long, layered finish. I love this balance of ripe fruit, mineral nuance, aromatic purity and structural power. This has the potential to grow into even more of a beauty with some time in bottle. | 96+ points, Erin Brooks for The Wine Advocate
