2016 Valley of the Moon Reserve, The Bough, Sonoma County
Continuing the story of the Bough, the 2014 blend is one that highlights our favorite supporting characters Malbec and Petite Verdot. Both varietals are an essential part of what makes Cabernet Sauvignon blends truly interesting. The Malbec adds a unique fruit quality to the mid palate other than red or purple fruit. Often it is more blueberries and here it combines with the Petite Verdot impart texture and earthiness.
