Our 2020 Grand Rouge allures with swirls of chocolate drizzled coconut macaroons, shaved cedar, and rosemary toast giving way to an enticingly supple palate with impressions of graham cracker, ripe cherries and baking cocoa, all softly laying upon decadently layered tannins.
Chateau Grand Rouge is a magnificent blend showcasing Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc fruit sourced exclusively from our best vineyard properties. This flagship blend uses our highest quality grapes exhibiting great elegance and intensity. The inviting and complex nose offers aromas of ripe dark fruit, spices, and cedar. The palate is elegant with supple tannins, and a long finish that is fruit driven and peppery. It is a wine that improves year after year and can age for over 10 years in the cellar.
