2018 The Estates BDX Red Blend Oakville
Wonderfully expressive aromatics – rich and full, with vibrant acidity that keeps the wine bright and lively to the finish.
The majority of the fruit for our BDX blend comes from the To Kalon Vineyard, where well-drained, low fertility soils, aided by optimal sun exposure, consistently yield impeccable fruit maturity and amazing quality. The balance of the fruit comes from M-Bar Ranch, located a short distance south of To Kalon. It is a vineyard with a unique personality, also deeply rooted in the alluvial soils of the Oakville Bench. Together the fruit from these vineyards beautifully showcase the fullness of palate and delicate dance between structure and velvety tannin that the best Oakville vineyards do so well.
