The Haven Red Blend

label image label image

Tasting Notes

The Haven is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,  Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small quantity of Petit Verdot (percentages vary slightly from vintage to vintage) raised for 24 months in 50% new French oak.

It has a dense, slightly introspective bouquet with dusky blackberry and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fine acidity and a sensual, tarry finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. A very nice wine at a very attractive price.
