2017 Desert Wind Cabernet Sauvignon - Syrah

Our Cabernet Sauvignon – Syrah blend pairs very bold varietals to create a robust, yet well-rounded wine. The Syrah contributes plenty of color and powerful, dark fruit flavors and velvety tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon complements this with flavors of cherry, some acidity, and grippy tannins. This wine enjoyed 20 months in barrel that further developed the flavors and complexity of the blend. The resulting wine is bold and full-bodied with notes of blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, and sweet spice.
