Volcano Bordeaux Blend 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Merlot thrives in Aguila vineyard, thanks to the elevation (approximately 1600 feet) which keeps things cooler, with even temperatures throughout the day. We blended in some Cabernet Franc, which has added dimensions most noticeably to the nose - currant, violets and plum. Food friendly by design, it is lower in alcohol than the current fashion allowing the fruit to be the star. The Merlot works beautifully with savory foods - mushrooms, cured ham, parmesan cheese, seaweed, asparagus, most fish and meat.
