2010 Miktos Bordeaux Blend

Winemaker's Notes

Miktos – Greek, meaning to blend, mix or go well together. This is our fourth vintage of Miktos – a blend from the best barrels from Windacre Cabernet Sauvignon (mountain fruit), Merlot from our 26-yearold Windacre Vineyard, as well as our Windacre Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot.

Like our vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is aged for 24-30 months with 100% French oak. The wine is racked from barrel to barrel and is unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

An elegant blend, with a dark ruby red 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.
