2014 Articondo Bordeaux Blend
The 2014 vintage of the "Articondo" is a cuvee of all four red varietals we grow on the estate. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine its fruit forwardness, with notable aromas of black cherry and plum. Petit Verdot offers a voluptuous backbone, with pronounced notes of dark fruit. The Merlot adds some weight mid-palate and provides the red fruit characteristics, while Cabernet Franc brings sage, graphite and herb. These four varietals work beautifully together creating a savory, supple mouth-feel and richness.
The "Articondo" is named after Larry Grassini's grandfather - the first member of the Grassini family to leave Pisa, Italy and start a new life in America. Articondo Grassini loved to garden and cook. To honor him, this wine was crafted to compliment just about any meal.
