Aperture Bordeaux Red Wine 2019 (Alexander Valley, CA)
Producer Notes: For this vintage, we crafted a distinct Bordeaux blend, composed dominantly of malbec and merlot and delicately balanced by smaller inclusion of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and petit verdot. The ripe fruit characters are structured by seamless tannins, showcasing an elegant density to the blend. The 2019s are expressive in their youth and are drinking beautifully with a decant now, and will only continue to reward with cellaring.
Wine Advocate, 95-97 Points: “The 2019 Bordeaux Red Blend is a barrel sample composed of 40% Malbec, 34% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby-purple in color, the nose bursts with lilac perfume, Morello cherries, cured meats, star anise, tar and a mineral undercurrent. The palate is pixelated and lifted with glorious perfume lingering on the very long finish. It is due to be bottled in June and 2,200 cases are expected to be made."
