BLENDING INFORMATION: 90% Marechal Foch, 10% Cabernet Franc
This wine combines the vintner’s choice of red wines each year into a signature dry red blend. This release is deep and dark due in particular to the characteristics of the French-American hybrid grape “Maréchal Foch”, often simply referred to as “Foch”. The tannin levels are soft which makes it easy to enjoy young but with a sturdy acidic backbone, it has respectable ageing potential.
