2013: Wine Advocate - 92, Wine Enthusiast - 92 & "Editors' Choice"
2014: Wine Advocate barrel score - (91-93)
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 additionof Red Mountain fruit, this wine is designed to be more generous and voluptuous in style, while still remaining complex and balanced.
2014 Gravura Winemaker Tasting Note—This wine leads with ripe plum, cassis, fresh cherries and mocha, with hints of bay leaf, dried thyme, and anise. Rich and
weighty on the palate, with dark fruits, chocolate and herb notes, all upon a firm structure that will reward bottle age.
