A perennial favorite, our Une Vallée represents the cream of the crop of the vintage! Always the first Bordeaux-style blend crafted each year from our finest barrels and favorite vineyards. The wine opens with aromas of cassis, black cherries, plum, loam, cedar, vanilla, and dark chocolate. Delicious flavors of black cherry, cocoa nibs, barrel spice, and sweet herbs lead to a long, captivating finish.
