2017 APERTURE BORDEAUX RED BLEND


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.
