Rafael Tirado Wines Laberinto Blend 2013

This hand harvested, single vineyard, is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that Rafael Tirado planted himself in 1993. The palate is full-bodied with lavish ripe black cherries, blackberries, blueberry and cassis fruit that coat the mouth. Hints of eucalyptus and violets lead to a structured yet smooth finish with subtle hints of oak. Succulent fruit with good grip.
