Sandar & Hem 2018 Bordeaux Blend, Santa Cruz Mountains, California, USA
Sandar & Hem 2018 Bordeaux Blend, Santa Cruz Mountains, California
Winemaker: Robert Bergstrom
Variety: 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Terroir: Santa Cruz Mountains, multiple sites- rugged, rocky, high altitude and well draining mixed soils.
Aging: 18 months in 10% new French Oak Barrels.
Tasting Note: An exceptional vintage for the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is a bottle that can AGE. The nose opens on aromas of Santa Rosa plums, dark cherries, graphite, and swells to a bouquet of lilac, black tea, mint, and balsam fir. Elegantly layered and well-balanced with fine tannins, the wine is graceful and svelte. A beautiful wine of purity and length that should drink well beyond a decade.
