2018 Red Wine, Oakville Station
From a legendary vineyard that is farmed by the University of California, Davis, this is a brilliant expression of Oakville terroir. The Merlot portion of the blend offers classic juicy ripeness and a lifted sweet fruit flavor. The Cabernet Franc delivers a complex medley of lush dark berry flavors layer with notes of dark chocolate and black licorice. The Cabernet Sauvignon has the backbone and acidity that brings a firm foundation to the blend. Robust and full-bodied in texture, the supple tannins let you know this is ready now, but would cellar well if you have the patience.
Varietal: 41% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
