Tasting Notes from Winemaker Allison Tauziet:
The 2015 “Cariad” is intensely aromatic. The duality of the growing season is highlighted with the wine’s vibrancy and concentration. Dark fruits like blackberry and juicy plum layer with notes of grilled steak and charcoal. Mineral, wet stone, and forest floor guide the character of the wine, giving a heightened earth tone. 2015 emphasizes not only the ripe fruits, but also the gorgeous elements of the terroir. On the palate the tannins enter with tremendous breadth. In 2015, we find structure and texture paired seamlessly.
The “2015 Cariad” is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.
