|Streek||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Franc, Merlot|
The 2016 Gracia is composed of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed at this stage with crushed red and black plums, black cherries, cedar chest, lilacs and truffles plus a waft of violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and fresh with minerally notions on the finish. Less than 600 cases produced.

Very nicely nuanced and integrated aromas of rich dark plums, as well as slate and violets. The palate has a sleek build to the finish with a very plush and punchy drive of rich and flavorful dark plums. Classic power here. A blend of 70 per cent merlot, 25 per cent cabernet franc and five per cent cabernet sauvignon.
