Grand Mélange 2018

The driving rain pelted the old stone masonry, wind propelling the droplets with such fury it evoked the sound of a herd of stampeding cattle. Inside, in front of a crackling fire, the young couple clinked glasses filled with a deeply hued red wine. “To winter,” the man said, “may it only last as long as necessary, and may our cellar carry us through!” The woman smiled and took a sip, the rich wine warming her mind and body.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromatically, one is immediately transported to the Right Bank of Bordeaux, where this wine shows a striking commonality, with surges of eucalyptus and raspberry softening into milk chocolate. A sip reveals engrossing flavors of plum, blueberry preserves, and a fascinating intimation of blood orange.
Winemaker Notes
Grand Mélange is our homage to the classic blended red wines that made Bordeaux famous. We continue to listen to the best winemaker in history, Mother Nature, as each year we craft this blend differently to showcase the best grapes of each vintage. This rendition has an aesthetically pleasing deep purple opacity that comes from the high percentages of Merlot and Malbec.
Food Pairing Notes
Full-bodied and firmly tannic, this is a great choice for up to 8 years of aging or a prompter meeting with a New York Steak.
Production
45% Merlot, 35% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
