When blending our 2017 vintage wines, we found a selection of barrels that tasted so exceptionally well, we knew we wanted to showcase them in this release. Inspired by our Insider Club, we created a Bordeaux style blend with a Paso twist by adding Tannat and Carignane to the Malbec, Cab and Merlot; and the result is fantastic. Vibrant in color, aromas of cherry and vanilla excite your senses. Flavors of bright red fruit, cherry cola and notes of cinnamon on the palate lead to a smooth finish. This wine is vibrant and lively on the palate; it’s yummy!

Opening a Waxed Bottle: It’s not much trickier than a regular bottle! No need to cut off the wax. Just rub the top of the wax with the palm of your hand to warm it which will help soften the wax. Use a manual corkscrew and twist it right through the wax and into the cork. Just like a non-waxed bottle, pull up and the cork will lift right out. Remove any loose pieces of wax to prevent them from falling into the bottle and enjoy!
