Boxwood Topiary
Boxwood Winery
United States - Virginia

Topiary is a dark garnet color. A delicate floral nose of violet and lilac lingers through to the palate, blooming into plush dark flavors of blueberry, blackberry and plum. A strong fruit character leads into woody tannin and subtle hints of graphite, challenging the norms of Merlot-based Bordeaux blends with its lively fruitiness and a lengthy and full-bodied finish.

Wine Type
71% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot
Aging in French oak barrels for 12 months, 33% new / 33% 1 year / 33% 2 year
