2016 Desert Wind ORA

Our Ora is a unique blend featuring equal portions of Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc with a small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon to round it out. Each varietal in this Bordeaux-inspired blend was fermented in open top bins with twice daily punch downs, with an average of 8 days of skin contact. Post-Fermentation, the blend was aged in barrels for up to 15 months. This unique blend is complex with silky tannins and flavors of black currant, cherry cola, black pepper, and chocolate.
