    About This Wine

    Our 2017 Vaca Red Blend, a combination of 90% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 3% Merlot, reveals bright aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, with just a touch of minerality, dried herbs and perfumed oak. The ripe dark fruit carries over onto a round, mouth-filling palate, joined by notes of cassis and supported by firmly structured tannins. Rich blackberry and sweet oak distinguish the long, succulent finish. This full, lush wine is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in bottle over the next decade. Enjoy with grilled New York strip steak, roast leg of lamb, thick cut pork chops or Korean shortribs.
