2020 APERTURE BORDEAUX RED BLEND


For this vintage, we crafted a distinct Bordeaux blend, composed almost equally of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, and merlot, delicately balancing with a smaller inclusion of cabernet franc. The ripe red fruit characters are structured by silky seamless tannins, showcasing an elegant density to the blend. The 2020s are expressive in their youth and are drinking beautifully with a decant now, and will only continue to reward with cellaring.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats


While the significant wildfire challenges of this vintage did not allow us to produce our entire portfolio of wines, the wines we were able to put to bottle were done so with complete confidence and a renewed sense of awe for the delicate balance between unpredictable nature and precise science that our craft is rooted in. We are proud to share this flawless Bordeaux blend with you now. 
A note on the 2020 vintage from our Winemaker and Founder, Jesse Katz
