The Une Vallée Red Wine is the crème de la crème of the vintage. Only the best barrels each year are blended to craft this Cabernet-based blend. The wine is aromatic and lush in texture with delicious aromas and flavors of blackberry compote, black cherries, leather, cedar, mocha, and baking spices. An opulent and hedonistic wine that really starts to shine after a couple years in the cellar. Enjoy!
