The Investor is a red wine that beautifully blends together the unique flavors and expressions of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, resulting in a powerful, yet approachable assemblage with significant fruit presence. The Merlot contributes fresh red berry aromatics and a soft, velvety texture to balance the power of Petite Sirah, which adds concentration, tannins, spice and blueberry flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon further increases the final blendís complexity and depth and the Malbecís incredibly vibrant floral aromatics heighten the blendís freshness.
Blend: 42% Merot, 30% Petite Sirah, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec
"Concentrated and spicy, this assemblage of 42% Merlot, 30% Petite Sirah, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9% Malbec proves highly worthy of your time and enjoyment, with fresh berries prominent on the nose before an echo of grilled meat. Super-silky tannins engage blue floral notes with dark, intense black fruit." -93pts, Tasting Panel
"The 2015 Proprietary Red The Investor is blended of 42% Merlot, 30% Petite Sirah, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Malbec aged 18 months in about 30% new oak. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it reveals freshly crushed black and red currants, black cherries and unsmoked cigars with hints of violets, chocolate box and cedar. Full-bodied and packed with vibrant black fruit layers, it has a firm, very fine-grained frame and finishes long and spicy. 10,000 cases produced." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
