2017 "Eclipse" Blend

Gold medal

 

This is a classic Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend, meaning that it's predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot in descending order. George and Linda have been making an approximation of this blend since our start in 2003 - in fact, George refers to it as our flagship wine as much for our history with it as for its incredible flexibility. Making a complex cassoulet? Absolutely. Bringing a bottle to a grill out? Can't go wrong. Host gift? You must really like them. Opening by itself? It stands alone but doesn't overpower. All in all, a good blend fills the holes that other wines may leave behind.

 

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
