TASTING NOTES

A cellar worthy blend with earthy and dusty character on the nose, featuring aromas of blackberries, black licorice and figs, accented by notes of tobacco leaves, black truffles and ground squash. Dark fruit abounds on the palate with black cherries, blackberries and ripe earthy figs complemented by underlying notes of dandelion greens, hibiscus, and herbal tea leaves. Long finish with chocolate and coffee notes.”

 

WINEMAKING

Our Founder’s Reserve was created to highlight the characters of the Merlot and Cabernet Franc,

which are known for notes of dark berries, black licorice, black pepper, figs, and earthy elements. These flavors layered with the cellar, the cask characters of dark chocolate, espresso, tobacco create amazing medium tannin wine from the grape to barrel tannins.

 

FOOD PAIRING

This wine is recommended to be paired with an elegant dark chocolate lava cake, or slow cooked

gamey lamb roast, or succulent roasted duck with sage-blackberry chutney.
