55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petit Verdot

Rating: WA 92

Tasting notes:

The 2016 Arise Proprietary Red is a blend of 55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with fragrant black cherries, black raspberries and warm plums scents with hints of underbrush, dried herbs, raspberry leaves and spice box. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled in the mouth, the palate has great vivacity with a grainy texture and long, lively finish. 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker notes:

"Ideal harvest conditions allowed for long macerations in the tanks, extracting perfectly ripe fruit and integrated tannins from these diverse Bordeaux varietals from over twenty vineyard lots."

Winemaker, Aaron Pott
