Chevaux Noir 2015
Our second release of Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend, inspired by the Cheval Blanc, hails from the West Texas High Plains. The Amanecer Vineyards of Sundown, TX provided the Merlot which beautifully compliments the Bingham Family Vineyards Cabernet Franc.
A full-bodied, bold wine, the 2015 Chevaux Noir is warm and soft. The barrel component tames the Cab Franc while expressing the best of the Merlot. Smooth and warm, this wine elicits warm fires at home with loved ones.
