2019 Lloyd

38% Cab Sauvignon, 24% Cab Franc, 18% Malbec, 14% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot

92 Points - Vinous
"Opaque ruby. Powerful dark berry, mocha and floral aromas are complemented by suggestions of incense and vanilla. Sweet, broad and velvety on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry and cherry pie flavors given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Clings with a strong tenacity on the smoky finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins. 40% new French oak." Josh Raynolds


Lloyd Messer always envisioned the Calcareous Vineyard site as being a classic producer of Bordeaux varietals. This Estate blend is an annual confirmation of that vision. Highlighting our plantings of Merlot, Cab Frac, Malbec, Petit Verdot as well as Cab Sauv. This wine is a testament to our sites ability to produce transcendent examples of a wide range of varietals.

Tasting Notes
Deeply colored red hues express the full extraction and amazing acidity of this wine. The nose is full of earthy spice, currant and blackberry. Ripe dark red fruit, richly dense tannins and refreshing acidity make for a surprisingly juicy palate and clean finish for such a powerful wine. Should drink beautifully for 12-16 years.
