Deep ruby in color, our Slate 7 is full-flavored and delicious now but will only improve with more time in the bottle. It's a Bordeaux-style blend with an expressive nose that features dark fruit and berry, sweet wood, toasty vanilla, tobacco, and floral aromas. This vintage shows juicy acidity with a lingering finish of peppery spice.
Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
