2018 Highway 12 Bordeaux Blend
Single Vineyard--Serres Ranch
Well it's the 15th vintage of this beauty and nothing's changed--still equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the Serres Ranch, this blend is still showing the notes we've all come to know and love so much each year. The deep plum color and the bold whiffs of blackfruit, violets and mocha create a harmonious glimpse into what's to come on the palate. Bright entry and mid-palate of plum and currant with tanned leather prevail. Finishes long and lush and slightly herbal for balance. Pairs perfectly with the last BBQ's of a barely-there summer. Think skirt steak tacos and al pastor nachos. Pile 'em high and pour 'em heavy. Drink or save--7-10 years.
