Right Bank Bordeaux Blend
Alc. 14.5% 177 cases produced $32
(38% Merlot, 25% Cab Franc, 25% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec,
6% Cabernet Sauvignon)
Bordeaux France is home to Europe’s largest estuary, the Gironde, and its two connecting rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which divide the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. The Right Bank of Bordeaux is known for its Merlot based blends and the Left Bank is known for its Cabernet Sauvignon based blends. For decades Windwalker has offered a Left Bank inspired blend, “Lady in Red,” which is Cabernet Sauvignon dominant. Now we are introducing Right Bank, a blend that is inspired by the Merlot based blends of Right Bank Bordeaux, which are some of the most expensive wines ever sold. We find it fun to try, “Lady in Red,” side by side with Right Bank L-1, two opposite blends inspired by two opposite sides of Bordeaux. The question that has been debated for centuries is: which blend do you prefer?
2020 Petit Petite
Alc. 14% 197 cases produced $34
(50% Petit Verdot & 50% Petite Sirah)
The bold structures of both Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah come together for a rich and complex palate pleasure bomb. By marrying these two inky, robust and full bodied wines together we discovered something truly exceptional. With a delicate and balanced touch of both French oak and American oak to compliment the round and lush tannins revealed a surprisingly pleasing and approachable wine in its youth. Enjoy now or cellar it for years to come.
