Our wine tonight is the Granda from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard.
Red blend of estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Chambourcin.
Fermented in French Oak Barrels.
Burgundy in color.
Intensely fruit forward on the nose, off dry with mild tannins. Flavor notes of black cherries, red plums, blackberries, and red licorice. Finishing long with subtle earthy and nutty tones.
A really nice easy drinking red blend.
Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard is rooted on a 100 plus year old dairy farm. The soil is fertile and rich in nutrients and not over farmed. Originally planted in 2003, much of those original vines remain.
