Our 2018 ‘Tartan’ Red Blend has a very deep nose with aromas of dark chocolate, cherries, and pepper. With earthy undertones, the rich, layered flavors of red fruits and all-spice envelop the palate. While packed with tannin, this red blend has a supple and lush finish. A great wine to enjoy now or cellared through 2040.
