Elegant Merlot blend from the tippy-top of Bordeaux

    • Elegant and oh-so-silky, this blend of sumptuous Merlot and Cabernet is a fine French wine - with a POP of fruit you'll love.
    • With your funding, Jonathan traveled to the north tip of Bordeaux – a region called the Médoc –  where the sandy gravel and chalky clay soils make grapes grow up strong, concentrated and hearty. That gives this wine its characteristic oomph!
    • Only a couple hundred cases were made – collect a bottle while you can!

Aging advice
This is a fruit-forward young wine, ready to enjoy. Its structure means it will improve with 2-3 years of cellaring, and remain a pleasure for at least 10 years!

Serving advice
Let it breathe for up to an hour before drinking.

Local food match
Grilled steak, game, stews, hard cheeses.
