2020 Aperture Soil Specific Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #5062233
Winery Notes- For this vintage, we crafted a distinct Bordeaux blend, composed almost equally of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, and merlot, delicately balancing with a smaller inclusion of cabernet franc. The ripe red fruit characters are structured by silky seamless tannins, showcasing an elegant density to the blend. The 2020s are expressive in their youth and are drinking beautifully with a decant now, and will only continue to reward with cellaring.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2020 Bordeaux Red Blend is composed of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Malbec, 28% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc, matured in 45% new French oak for 18 months. Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, it is scented of blueberries and red and black cherries with nuances of graphite, spice and tea leaves, continuing to blossom aromatically as it spends time in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is velvety and refreshing with alluringly floral fruit and a long, layered finish. Restrained and easy to drink, it's a great success in a challenging vintage. 2,189 cases were made.
