2017 Miktos Bordeaux Blend


October 2020 Wine Club Selection

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 is unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of dense fruit with understones of dark chocolate and licorice. Finishing with warm spices and soft tannins.
