2018 Family Reserve
2018 Family Reserve

The Family Reserve is a blend we have been creating for years to highlight some of our favorite lots from some of our favorite growers. In it’s nature, the blend is nontraditional and this year it is lead by Italian varieties with Dolcetto making up the majority of the blend. We thought this was nicely balanced with Syrah, Malbec and Tannat. This is a wine that will change over time and has immense aging potential. We anticipate it to be drinking beautifully in a few years.
