91 Points - Wine Advocate: "A barrel sample blended of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Red Blend is intensely scented of cr√É®me de cassis and baked blueberries with subtle hints of mocha, licorice, baking spices and fertile loam plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied and laden with densely packed black fruits, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and lively line to support, finishing long and spicy." -LP 6/2018
√Ç Winery's Notes: "Creating the Aperture Red Blend is one of winemaker Jesse Katz's favorite times to engage his creativity and allow the different vineyard lots to guide him. The 2016 blend beautifully demonstrates what we are always looking to achieve, a focused tension between the fruit's expansive power and nuanced elegance."
