Our 2016 Best Barrels Right Bank Blend is a distinctive celebration of the Blue Rock Estate like no other wine we produce. Inspired by some of the world-famous wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol, we wanted to showcase the art of blending and highlight why these varietals are historically planted together. 57% Cabernet Franc, 38% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has produced a singular and spectacular wine that defies comparison and stands alone in our proud Best Barrels lineup.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Everything about this wine proclaims distinction. It's beautiful medium-ruby-red shine, the seductive aromatic blend of spicy, savory and fruity; when smelling a wine gives you a powerful sense of its balance and structure, crossing over sensory lines from aroma to texture, you know you have something special. Reds and black fruits, combined with herbs, earth, mocha, a subtle suggestion of allspice, and the most glorious silky texture all in perfect harmony. We bottled a mere 138 cases of this Best Barrels wine and all wish we could have an entire case to ourselves!
