Red blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is deep ruby with purple undertones and evocative aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, clove and oak. The palate is intense with generous tannins, high acidity, and subtle notes of black currant, oak and spice; it has an impactful rough elegance about it.

Drinks more like old BDX than aged Napa. Soft as silk with an ample but not unpleasant helping of bret.
Pair with getting into a heated discussion with your right wing nut of a father who, when asked him to back up his assertion about “absurdly high public sector salaries” 🙄 with facts, responds with a personal attack. — 3 months ago

Eisele Vineyard ‘Altagracia’ 2012: Medium-full bodied. Elegant balance. Fine-grained tannins. Ripe delicious flavors of black fruits, plum & cherry, graphite, vanilla & oak. Smooth memorable finish. Consisting of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot & 4% Malbec, this Bordeaux-style red blend from Napa was a big winner! Strong aromas, smooth rich flavors. Drinking amazingly well right now. Highly recommend. Great weekend to all. Cheers🍷 — 6 months ago
