2017 EXS The Reverend
Inspired by the great Right-Bank wines of Bordeaux, The Reverend is a celebration of the "other" classic varietals of the region. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon are purposefully blended to create a sum that is truly greater than its parts. The 2017 vintage is a blockbuster wine with zippy aromas of fresh red and blackberries, purple flowers, and a hint of tarragon. The palate reveals a deep power guided by firm tannins, bramble berry, and white pepper. An expansive, lingering finish will reward those with the will to wait for their next sip.
