Gravura is our Bordeaux blend that emphasizes a
harmony of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The
name is a play on an artisan printing technique, and
on the Bordeaux region of Graves, which features
similar blends to this one. With more Merlot in
the blend and the addition of Red Mountain fruit,
this wine is designed to be more generous and
voluptuous in style, while still remaining
complex and balanced.
2012 Gravura Tasting Note-Fresh black cherries,
black currants, mocha, thyme essence, and
leather on the nose. This wine is seamless
on the palate, balancing black fruits, graphite,
and cigar box with a livening acidity. A delicious
blend that is eminently drinkable now, but will
cellar for 5-8 or more years.
