2017 Wyncroft "Shou" (Bdx Blend)

45.00

The 2017 vintage is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 24% Cabernet Franc, making it more like a “Right Bank” Bordeaux style from St. Emilion. The color is an almost opaque red-violet and accompanies an alluring nose of brown spice, blackberry, and black currant, while the high percentage of Merlot makes the palate rich and smooth, though youthful. The tannins are very fine leading to a long refreshing finish. The wine was aged in 20% New Cadus Medium-Plus Toast barrels with the remaining percentage being mostly in neutral Cadus and Vicard barrels. This conservative use of new oak allows the delicious fruit of this wine to be in the forefront.
