red berry, spice, and pepper
A unique blend of Bordeaux varieties. For 2016 Antietam Creek Vineyards made one red wine that expresses the essence of the Bordeaux blend: red berry character from Merlot, spice and pepper from Cabernet Franc, color and structure from Petit Verdot, with a hint of bramble berry and graphite from Cabernet Sauvignon. Complete malolactic fermentation and 14 months aging in French oak barrels provide softness and structure.
36% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc, 23% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec. Silver medal, Maryland Governor’s Cup 2018.
