2016 Adam’s Blend

This Cabernet Franc dominate blend “bridges” the two main varietals from Bordeaux, the Left Bank which favors Cabernet Sauvignon and the Right Bank which favors Merlot and completes the series of proprietary blends from Canard. This wine is rich, yet medium bodied with long soft tannins. Perfumed nose with hints of strawberry jam, red plums and violets. A smooth delicate entry yields to great structure and a long finish of ground rose buds, cocoa, rhubarb, sweet cranberries and cherries. Aged in French oak to create a long-term, ageworthy blend, this will easily cellar well for 10+ years.
