Bordeaux

4323 visitors
Red Bordeaux, which is traditionally known as claret in the United Kingdom, is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carmenere. Today Malbec is very seldom used, and Carmenere is used in tiny quantities. An example of a famous château that uses Carmenere is Château Clerc Milon, a fifth growth Bordeaux.

White Bordeaux, including the sweet Sauternes, is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.

2002 Allusion

A Bordeaux-blend of 50 percent cabernet franc, 25 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 25 percent merlot. Gobs of red and black fruit combine to make this a deep, intriguing wine. Licor ...moreice, cedar, black currants and spicy oak. Exuberance with plenty of depth, richness, and subtle complexity make this wine a "best buy". Putting on weight in the bottle and taking on an elegantly pretty velvety texture. This wine has at least a 10 to 15 year life ahead of it. We are now into our last pallet of this wine so if you want it, don't delay.

2007 Choreography
Napa Valley

Choreography is a blend of five wines and represents our role of setting the stage for our vines and grapes to achieve their highest expression in the vineyards and at the winery. ...more The grapes for this wine come from two vineyards in the Napa Valley that are managed by the Nord family, a family with a distinguished tradition in Napa Valley winegrowing.

"The 2007 Choreography, with its deep garnet hue, releases a complex bouquet focused on cherry, blueberry and cranberry, with side notes of fresh roasted coffee, cedar and vanilla. On the palate, the flavors expand upon the aromas - dark sweet fruits, smoky oak, vanilla, coffee and a touch of cocoa. The velvety, sultry mouthfeel, with its gentle acidity and ripe tannins, set the stage for the gradually subsiding rich finish."--GJ

2004 SAGE
Paso Robles

This Bordeaux blend is unique! A blend of 50% Malbec/50% Petit Verdot, most wineries wouldn’t dare put these two varietals together without some percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon or ...more Merlot because of the high tannic structure. But we thought differently. Hints of raisins, plum, and tobacco from the Malbec paired with blackcurrants and the lovely scent of violets from the Petit Verdot make this wine both great to drink now or in 15 years.
