2015 Miktos Red Blend


90 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Winemaker's Notes

Miktos - Greek, meaning to blend, mix or go together well. This is our fourth bottling from select vineyards, blended together to produce this Bordeaux style wine. Similar to our vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is aged for 24 months in 100% French oak. The wine is racked from barrel to barrel and is unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Inspired by the Left Bank Bordeaux blends of France, this wine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot. Invigorating flavors of black pepper, soft red cherry, cassis and tobacco. Deep, powerful and explosive flavors on the tongue with a long lingering finish.
