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.
2015 Gravura Winemaker Tasting Note—"The 2015 Gravura is the most hedonistic yet, with aromas of black cherry coulis, red currants, chocolate truffle, violets, and a hint of leather. Rich and palate-coating mouthfeel with dark red and black berries, mocha, and toasted hazelnuts. There is a nice streak of acidity on palate to lift the large-scaled fruit and structure. This wine is tasting great already, but will age 5-8 years at least." - Chris Peterson, Winemaker
