A Bordeaux blend of Cab Sav, Cab Franc, & Merlot- Appassimento is a winemaking style that dries the grapes to enhance flavors.

The Appassimento style leads to a higher concentration of the juice inside the berries, which enhances the body and structure of the wine. Enjoy the aromas of raisins, figs, eucalyptus, black cherries with tastes of earth and sour cherry with spice.
