2016 Kenefick Founder's Reserve

Newest Release!

 

Winemaker Notes:

A blend of the five essential "Bordeaux" varietals from the Kenefick estate, this is the culmination of how the diverse profiles between varietal, soils, and microclimate can come together to create a stunning wine.

Tart cherry and lush preserve notes combine with Baker's Chocolate to form the palate. The aromatics are of fresh berries and custard with graham cracker crust. Fine tannin structural elements will allow this Bordeaux style blend to age extremely well.
