2009 Miktos Bordeaux Blend Magnum

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-year-old 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

A rich blend reveals a dense, inky dark red color. Rich aromas of black cherry, mocha, blackberries with hints of violet and light earth tones. On the palate, velvety yet powerful deep red/black berries, mocha and light spice. A finish of ripe black fruit, with hints of cigar box and leather.
