2017 Desert Wind Ora
Desert Wind Ora is a unique red blend that showcases some of the best varietals from each vintage. The 2017 Ora combines Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc, as the main sources of fruit, color, and structure in. A bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere introducced additional fruit and their own unique aromas and flavors. Just a touch of Merlot and Syrah complete the wine. The blend is robust and complex with flavors of black currant, cherry cola, black pepper, and chocolate.
