Combining Cabernet Sauvignon + Merlot

Valle de Guadalupe is a unique and distinct terroir, known for its warm and dry climate, with cooling ocean breezes coming from the nearby Pacific. This combination of warm days and cool nights allows for the grapes to ripen slowly, developing a complex and nuanced flavor profile.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used in this blend are known for their deep, rich color and bold tannins. They add a strong structure to the wine, with notes of black currant, black cherry, and cassis. The Merlot grapes, on the other hand, bring a softer, rounder character to the wine, with notes of plum, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate.

When these two grape varieties are blended together, the resulting wine is a harmonious balance of boldness and softness. The rich tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon are tempered by the roundness of the Merlot, creating a wine that is both full-bodied and smooth. The flavors of black currant and blackberry are perfectly balanced, with the subtle hint of chocolate adding a touch of complexity.

The grapes for this blend were grown on our estate vineyard, where they were hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. The grapes were then fermented and aged to perfection, which imparts a rich, vanilla aroma and a smooth finish.

This wine is perfect for a special occasion or for those who appreciate the nuances and subtleties of a well-crafted wine. It pairs well with red meats, strong cheeses and hearty stews.

We are proud to offer this unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, grown in the distinct terroir of Valle de Guadalupe. We invite you to try a bottle and taste the unique character of our wine.
