Taken Red Blend 2018
4 months in 25% new oak (86% French, 7% American, 7% Hungarian)
The 2018 Taken Red Blend is a careful balancing act of light and dark. At first glance, the nose is dominated by ripe notes of raspberry, blackberry, black currant, and plum, but careful consideration reveals soft, floral undertones. Delicate hints of jasmine and vanilla bean elevate the palate while the body is defined by flavors of quince, roasted fig, and extra dark chocolate with a dash of allspice. The texture is full and robust, but gives way to rich, supple tannins on the finish.
Varietal Composition: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Zinfandel, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 2% Petite Sirah

Wow this is a fantastic Red Blend. I cant tell you how impressed I am. Reminds me of tasting my first bottle of Caymus. This wine will take the market by storm.
