2015 Miktos Bordeaux Blend


90 POINTS - Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Winemaker's Notes

Miktos - Greek, meaning to blend, mix or go well together. This is our seventh vintage of Miktos - a blend from the best barrels of our Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Verdot from our Estate Windacre Vineyard.

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

With a Left Bank Bordeaux blend, 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. The flavors are deep, powerful and explosive on the tongue with a long lingering finish.
