Vintner’s Reserve is a blend of the winemaker’s overall favorite barrels in the cellar. This year, the cuvee is comprised of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The component wines are brought together early to mature for eighteen months in French oak. VR is dark ruby in color with a complex bouquet of black cherry, blackcurrant and plum. It is full on the palate as dark fruit and oak blend together in a complex harmony of balanced delight and lingering pleasure.
