SKU: 103060-2

Constructing a blended wine is a special treat for those of us in the cellar. Without the constraints of a varietal designation we’re free to explore various combinations and the resulting expressions. After many trials ending in purple teeth and stained stemware we reached a point where aromatics, flavor and texture came together in harmony. The dominant Cabernet Sauvignon is evident throughout, from the creamy cassis notes on the nose to the elegantly structured mid-palate. Malbec brought levity to this wine in the form of brighter secondary aromas and well composed acidity. The exceptional length of this wine is a testament to the power of Petit Verdot. While this late ripening varietal may not be flamboyant it can add depth and texture elevating a blend to new heights. The 2013 Point is a thoughtful and well-constructed wine that will continue to open up and evolve over the next 10+ years.
