2014 Rabicano, Deux Chevaux Vineyard

Tamber Bey's estate-grown wine, Rabicano (pronounced Rab-i-kawno),  is a masterful blend that exhibits the unique traits of the Deux Chevaux Vineyard: a strong core of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with the bolstering power of Petit Verdot and the aromatics of Cabernet Franc. Rabicano has a deep, black-fruited, juicy core, rich tannins and a lasting finish.

Tasting Notes
The nose is full of plum and blackberry, with an undertone of dry figs and a hint of clay. The mouth-feel is fleshy and consistent, with black currant and blackberry, as well as hints of rosemary, ripe nectarine and flowers. The finish is long, with dark chocolate, cherry and slate notes.
