2015 Terre Blanche Grand Vin de Bordeaux - France - (x1)
Wine production in the Bordeaux subregion of Graves dates back to the 12th century. Graves means “gravel” in French, and the local soil features a bounty of gravel and mineral-rich silt due to its auspicious location to the left of the Garonne River. The old vines that grew the grapes for 2014 Terre Blanche Grand Vin de Bordeaux reach deep into the soil for nutrients, and have produced a supple and dry red that is vivid in the glass, offering smooth flavors of currant and black cherry, and an easy finish. Made from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
