Skipstone Ranch Preface Red Blend 2016


Only 4 left!

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine is very typical of Melka with ripe (but never overripe) blackberry, cherry, currant, cassis and blueberry with a supporting cast of clove, vanilla and rose water. There is a blanket of smooth tannin that persists throughout, propping up the fruit concentration nicely. There is considerable lift in the finish to keep the wine fresh aromatically intense.
