C.G. Die Arie 2007 D’Arideaux Blend
While the opening of this wine has some Bordeaux characteristics, the mid-palate remains very mysterious with depth and complexity that carries through the finish. This wine has an inky red color and strong berry and mocha aromas that go all the way to the palate adding savory and smoky notes. The long finish is more of the same with added baking type spiciness and hints of licorice. This wine is made of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Syrah, and 28% Cabernet Franc grapes. The alcohol content is 14.5% and 342 cases produced.
