Artists create “Depth” in their work by utilizing light and dark regions in an image to allow the piece to truly captivate its audience in an interesting and unique way. The co-fermentation of these two Bordeaux varietals yields contrasting flavors of soft baked plum, and vibrant, spicy earthiness of radish and root vegetables. The rich and velvet-like palate feel of the Merlot blends beautifully between the rugged and organic feel of the Cabernet Franc. This blend reveals its unique power mid palate, and gently winds down into a delicate and mellow finish.
The Depth is a red wine blend made of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc grown at Camp Four Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley. The grapes were picked, crushed and co-fermented together and then aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, 20% new oak. The blend also includes 30% Cabernet Franc whole cluster fermentation. Pair with grilled steak topped with a chimichurri sauce.
