Taken Red Blend 2017
18 months in 50% new oak (60% French, 20% American, 20% Hungarian)
Dense ruby color with a purple hue, this alluring, powerful wine showcases aromatics of blueberry pie, dark briary fruit characters and huckleberry compote. The well-integrated oak is subtle, yet present. This opulent blend starts out very robust and transitions to a full mid-palate displaying plush, velvety tannins. There is a lot of dark fruit on the palate and a creamy, milk chocolate nuance on the finish.
Varietal Composition: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 9% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah
