Red Blend, Incantation, Dry Creek Valley, 2018
This is CAST Wines’ first ever Bordeaux blend, inspired in part by our memorable river cruise in Bordeaux the summer of 2018, but just as much by our enjoyment of wines from the region for many years.
With a firm backbone provided by our popular Pyramid Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Hawkes family (50% of the blend), and with the careful blending by winemaker Ashley Herzberg of Rockpile-sourced Merlot (20%) and Malbec (15%) and Windsor Oak Cabernet Franc (15%), this wine has a terrific balance of boldness and smooth approachability that is just what we were looking for.
48% Cabernet Sauvignon
15% Cabernet Franc
