The Paring Red Blend 2018, California

2018 vintage: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18%, Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc & 2%, Petit Verdot. Barrel aging: Aged in French oak, 55% new and 45% neutral, for 22 months. Winemaker’s Notes: A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined, a study in elegance.
