Gravura is our ode to the Graves AOC of Bordeaux, emphasizing a harmony of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The name is a play on an artisan printing technique, and on the Bordeaux region of Graves, which features similar blends. Featuring more Merlot and with the addition of Red Mountain fruit, this wine is designed to be more generous and voluptuous in style, while still remaining complex and balanced.

Winemaker's notes: This wine leads with ripe plum, cassis, fresh cherries and mocha, with hints of bay leaf, dried thyme, and anise. Rich and weighty on the palate, with dark fruits, chocolate and herb notes, all upon a firm structure that will reward bottle age.
