We often forget that Bordeaux is more than super expensive 1st growth Château and cheap wine for French supermarkets. There is a ton of interesting wine there, and a lot of it represents a ton of classy value. This area of Bordeaux’s name points to its terroir strength: “graves” describes a gravely terrain. This wine is 52% Cabs Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented (by grape variety and parcel). Aromas of black cherries and plums, ripe cassis and herbal notes. Full-bodied and smooth ripe tannins, and a lightly spiced finish.
