53% Cab Franc, 47% Merlot. The parade of extraordinary value continues with yet another stellar vintage of our highly affordable Allusion. The 2012 is a laser sharp Bordeaux blend featuring Cabernet Franc and Merlot blended to bring balance and deep, ripe fruit into your glass. Alluding to the terroir, this wine shows considerable earthy richness. Our favorite pizza red!
Bottled July 2017. What that tells you is this wine was generously aged in fine French oak for 22 months. A blend of merlot, syrah and cabernet franc. Soft and elegant with a rainbow of assorted red and blue fruit accents. Drinking well now, but with the capability of evolving at least ten more years.
A Proprietor's Favorite. The fruit was grown under perfect conditions. Generously "fruit forward" from the 58% syrah, but beautifully rich, well-delineated and structured thanks to the addition of merlot and cabernet franc. This is a wine to put away for 2-3 years and consume over the following 10-15 years, if you can wait! We like it now with just an edge of a cellar chill on it to guzzle with a helping of spicy barbeque. Harmoniously pure. If you haven't tried it yet, you must!
