2012 French Blend


A new blend, available for the first time here at Heritage Oak Winery.  Our 2012 French Blend is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon with some Syrah, Petite Verdot and Petite Sirah blended in. Each wine adds its own characteristics to this truly delightful wine.  A deep intense red/purple greets the eye, the result of extended skin contact prior to pressing.  Black fruit on the nose followed by whiffs of vanilla. Black cherries of the Cab grace your tongue followed by the darker fruits of blackberry/blueberry from the Syrah, Petite Verdot and Petite Sirah with a lingering vanilla finish.   This wine has great acid/fruit balance, which along with just the right touch of tannins, creates a full yet soft mouthfeel with a backbone to support it all.   Overall a wonderfully rich and complex wine with layer upon layer of fruit and oak to delight your palate today and for years to come.
