About the wine

Sweet spot wine
  • A beguiling blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and a touch of Syrah -- a Bordeaux-styled blend which is why he calls it BX.
  • This shows off 2 of Jim's winemaker superpowers. He used his winemaker senses to unearth these two great wines and his infinite know-how to realize they are perfectly complimentary.
  • This is a really unique mix of grapes and you owe it to yourself to give it a whirl.
