We have wanted to produce a Bordeaux-style blend from Dineen for some time but have not had access to the Merlot to make the proper blend. Vineyard owner Pat Dineen came through and delivered just enough to provide this exciting vineyard-designated blend. The Cab and Cab Franc drive the flavor profile with the Merlot adding mid-palate complexity. This is a fine, full-flavored blend from Dineen to enjoy now or with time in a proper cellar.
