Grape: 47% Cabernet Franc, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: Cherry, Blueberry, Spice, Plum
Arrow&Branch proprietors Steve and Seanne Contursi share a great love for the wines of Bordeaux, particularly those produced with a large quantity of Cabernet Franc. They bought the organic Arrow&Branch Estate Vineyard in November 2007. The vineyard was formerly the source of Tony Soter's renowned and highly rated "Little Creek" Cabernet Franc.
Only 250 cases of the outstanding 2014 red blend were made. The wine spent 20 months in 70% new French oak barrel. It is soft, pliant, full bodied, thick and rich with round, soft tannins. The palate is vibrant with flavors of red cherry, plum, strawberries, blueberry, pepper, rocks, oak spice, leather, mocha, dark chocolate, and minerals. Finishes long and dry.
