2018 Trio Gift Set - Sabino, Tovero, Vermejo
This trio of wines includes one bottle each of our 2018 Sabino, 2018 Tovero, and 2018 Vermejo. The collection is a celebration of the red wines produced by our Deux Chevaux Vineyard.
2018 Sabino, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
Cabernet Franc is known for its aromatics, and this wine is no exception. The dark, cherry-red color divulges the aromas of wet slate, lavender, violet, kirsch, and rhubarb pie. The flavor profile is herbaceous, with floral and mossy notes giving way to rose petal and confectionary rhubarb, with hints of leather and cardamom. The tannins are strong and plush. The finish is both lingering and expressive.
2018 Tovero, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
This wine is all about the power of Petit Verdot, as immediately evident by the deep, dark plum color to the rim of the glass. The aromatics are deep and brooding, with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and candied pecans, and a hint of truffles and even graham cracker smores. Flavors of blueberry, boysenberry, and blackberry combine with graham cracker crumble, toasted pecan, and dark chocolate. The plush and supple mid-palate leads to a mouthcoating of expansive tannins for a long and firm finish. Cellar this wine and you will be rewarded for your patience.
2018 Vermejo, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
Vermejo greets you with lighter-toned baking spice aromas of cinnamon and cardamom, freshly grated nutmeg, and Chinese five-spice to complement fennel bulb, cedar, and pine resin on the nose. Black currant, black raspberry compote, and mint aromas linger. Flavors of black currant, blueberry, mint, chocolate ganache, all-spice, and fresh leather evolve into grilled oregano and tarragon, generous wet black slate, and cacao aromas propped up by firm, youthful tannins. The texture is vibrant, with a deep, dark core and considerable structure. Proud and unapologetic, this wine is a statement.
