2018 APERTURE BORDEAUX RED BLEND


A stunning expression of our most complex Bordeaux blend,  this wine is composed of one-third cabernet sauvignon, one-third merlot and expertly balanced by the remaining blend of malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats


“The nose offers vibrant berry scents with accents of charcuterie, mint chocolate, cigar wrapper, violets and pencil shavings aromas, and the palate is powerful but featherweight, silky and fresh with a very long, layered finish. I love this balance of ripe fruit, mineral nuance, aromatic purity and structural power. This has the potential to grow into even more of a beauty with some time in bottle.” 96+ pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
