Joseph Carr winery strive to make balanced, sophisticated, yet approachable Bordeaux style blends with both their Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot offerings.
By blending a trilogy of grapes from where they grow best, referred to as "Trois Cépages," acknowledges their dedication to winemaking. These wines reflect the unique terroir of the Napa Valley and are traditionally blended together with Cabernet Franc and, at times, Petit Verdot.
This wine displays a deep purple hue, and has great clarity for wine that is traditionally unfiltered. The bouquet offers scents of ripe black currant, smoke and saddle. Flavors include dark cherry and ripe plum with a hint of vanilla and cocoa dust. Firm, but approachable tannin structure accents a balanced and long finish.
