Bledsoe Family Wine

Winemaker Notes

This 2016 Bledsoe Family Wine is a bright, medium purple in the glass. Aromatics of dried fruit leather, vanilla, red licorice and fresh raspberry immediately seduce upon opening. I love the 2016 vintage. This wine is generous and silky – drinkable now but shows much depth and volume – I think it is the best left bank, Bordeaux blend we have made yet in these 1 Liter bottles and should easily be enjoyed upon release through 2022.
