Sandar & Hem Merlot Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The nose opens on aromas of Santa Rosa plums, dark cherries, graphite, and swells to a bouquet of lilac, black tea, mint, and balsam fir. Elegantly layered and well-balanced with fine tannins, the wine is graceful and svelte. A beautiful wine of purity and length that should drink well beyond a decade.

Bordeaux Blend:  60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

"The 2018 Red Wine is a Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon blend done in a style that emphasizes freshness, transparency and the feeling of vibrancy that makes Santa Cruz Mountains wines so appealing. Sweet dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and sage all open up with a bit of time. This is an especially mid-weight Bordeaux blend. I can’t wait to see how it ages."
