Made with five Bordeaux-Red varieties all sourced directly from Culmina's Golden Mile Bench estate, the 2016 R&D Red Blend is a rich, bold, Merlot-dominant red blend of exceptional quality and character. 


"So much wine for the money..."
91 POINTS | Beppi Crosariol


APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench

VINEYARD SOURCE
A blend of estate grown Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot from Arise Bench

WINEMAKING
Matured in a combination of new and used French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTE
Initial investigation into this red blend shows enticing aromas of black fruit, dark toast, and black pepper charcuterie.  Subsequent random sampling reveals a rich, full-bodied red wine with dried blackberry, green plum, and briny black olives flavours. The savory, long and well integrated finish suggests another glass should be poured. For research, of course.

FOOD PAIRING
Quick, mid-week spaghetti and meatballs; Grandma's hand-written lasagna recipe.
