2007 Miktos Bordeaux Blend

Winemaker's Notes

Miktos – Greek, meaning to blend, mix or go well together. This is our third vintage of Miktos – a blend from the best barrels from Reichel/Smiths’s Cabernet Sauvignon (mountain fruit), Merlot from our 25-yearold Windacre Vineyard, as well as our Windacre Cabernet Franc , Petite Verdot, and Jones Cabernet Franc.

Like our vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is aged for 24 months with 100% French oak. The wine is racked from barrel to barrel and is unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

An elegant blend, the 2007 Miktos is dark ruby red in color with concentrated aromas of black berry fruits. On the palate, it is packed with layers of black cherry, cassis, blueberry and just a hint of pomegranate. Full bodied with refined tannins, this wine is supple, polished and balanced with a long, lingering and satisfying finish.
