“Proof that the Livermore Valley can make serious Bordeaux blend reds. I love the fresh blackberries that pour from the glass of this elegant, dry red that prompts you to order some roast vegetables or meat right now. Long, crisp finish. 35 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 27 per cent merlot, 22 per cent petit syrah, the rest petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec.”~ JS
" The Spur 2016 is crafted from blending the classic Bordeaux varietals with Petite Sirah, which offers a distinctively California expression. Each varietal is farmed, harvested, and handcrafted individually to achieve their greatest expression. This vintage provided aromas and flavors of vanilla, spiced cranberry, and clove with the perfect balance of graham cracker and plum on the palate followed by assertive tannins and a lasting, elegant mouthfeel. Enjoy through 2024. " ~ Winery notes
