|Grape||Merlot, Cabernet Franc|
Composed of 64% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2019 Phoenix gives up notes of ripe black plums, blackberry preserves and mulberries, plus suggestions of menthol, dark chocolate and spice cake. Medium to full-bodied with plush tannins and bags of juicy black fruits, it finishes with a vibrant, lifted finish.
Ripe plums, blueberries and black cherries combine with sweet vanilla, pine wood and baking spices. Full-bodied, plush and tannic, yet this has a creamy, soft texture. The juicy and vibrant character makes its easy to drink. Long, warming finish. 64% merlot, 18% cabernet sauvignon and 18% cabernet franc. Give it three or four years to soften and come together.
