    Critic Score: 97

    The 2019 Red Wine is made from 67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Malbec, and 0.5% Petit Verdot, with all 4 mountains in the blend. Deep garnet-purple in color, it slowly unfurls to deliver a provocative perfume of chocolate-covered cherries, rose oil, and star anise with hints of violets, fallen leaves, forest floor, and dusty soil. Full-bodied, the palate has the most beautiful, silky tannins and well-integrated freshness supporting the perfumed fruit, finishing long and mineral-laced.

    Caladan's 2019 Red Blend is 67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc, with the last 1% a combination of Malbec and Petit Verdot. More approachable and more hedonistic than the varietal Cab Franc, it's loaded with mouthwatering notes of ripe cherries and redcurrants on the nose, then delivers waves of full-bodied pleasure in the mouth, a richly textured mid-palate and a long and softly dusty finish.
