2019 Highway 12 Bordeaux Blend
Single Vineyard--Serres Ranch
Always equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the Serres Ranch, this blend is still showing the characteristics we've all come to know and love so much each year. The deep magenta color and the nostalgic whiffs of cherry Jolly Ranchers, violets and cedar create a curious glimpse into what's to come on the palate. Bright entry and mid-palate of plum preserves and currant with tanned leather and mocha notes prevail. Finishes long and lush and slightly herbal for balance, but softens with some bottle time. Pairs well with pan roasted duck breast with pomegranate reduction over farro & goat cheese salad. Drink or save 5-7 years.
