2016 Benny's Blend

Regular price $30.00

Benjamin is the third youngest of the Ridgemill Estate grandkids lending their names to wines in our range. This wine is a blend of Bordeaux varieties, Merlot and Malbec generally not seen without their wingmen Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc. In this case they work great.

Aromas of pencil shavings, graphite, tobacco leaf and hints of spice. A full and concentrated palate showing dark plum and black cherry with lashing of red fruits. A tight and focused palate with new French oak in a supporting role.
