2016 Grand Total Reserve
Blending allows us to use the very best characteristics of these varieties to consistently produce the 2016 Grand Total Reserve. This bold Bordeaux blend of Merlot (44%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Malbec (6%) teems with aromas of coffee beans, cocoa powder, tobacco leaves and dusty earth. The palate has a rich concentration of plums, cassis, leather and eucalypt. The fine tannins provide great structure to the wine and notes of cigar box, star anise, nutmeg and dried cherries add to the lingering finish.
The structure is dense and fine grained, and will allow the wine to age comfortably for 10 years from vintage date, under ideal cellaring conditions. A wine that will reward you when cellared but that it is also very enjoyable right now!
