Dineen Vineyards, 2010 Heritage Red

This is the fourth and fifth vintage of our popular Bordeaux-style blend. The percentages may differ from vintage to vintage, but the result is always the same – yummy and reflecting the care that we take in the vineyard to produce wines of depth and character, while being expressive of the unique qualities that reflect our hilltop terroir. Again, the wine was hand-crafted by Scott Greer of Sheridan Vineyard. The blend is made up of all 5 Bordelais varietals. The core structure comes from 32% Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc, that adds wonderful floral anecdotes to the blend, makes up another 32%. Merlot, at 29%, adds roundness and tames the tannins to mouth-coating silkiness. The remaining 7% of the blend, Malbec and Petit Verdot, add punch and color to the mix. In the glass, the wine is an intense, dark purple-red with a slightly lighter rim. Plum, violets and licorice characterize the bouquet. In the mouth, flavors of dark fruit, sweet woodruff, kumquat and wet stones add
