Fleur Bleu California Seven Petals
This dry red blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Petite Sirah, 5% Ruby Cabernet, 5% Syrah, 5% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc and 2% Petit Verdot displays a complex and mature array of aromas.
In the nose, there is a mix of cherry, plum, blackberry, cacao and toasted oak, as well as mature characters of creamy vanilla, leather and tobacco. With a majority of 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2019 Petite Sirah, tannic structure is the main feature of this wine in the mouth. It is intense with alcohol at almost 14% and offers a powerful, lingering texture provided by a combination of fruit and oak tannins. The mouth is very chewy with a lot of depth and balance. While the young tannins have power, they do not overwhelm the creamy mouthfeel.
