This blends a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It delivers plenty of lush layered black-currant and black-cherry flavors around softened tannin and sweet vanilla oak. (VB)  (2/2019)

Caravan is hand-harvested, clusters are hand-sorted before de-stemming, then berry sorted to insure uniformity. The grapes were cold soaked for 4 days, then fermented in small closed topped tanks, with gentle pump-overs for optimal color extraction & tannin management. The wine was aged for 20 months in a combination of 70% new French & European oak barrels, then minimally handled through bottling. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 10% Malbec, & 2% Petit Verdot -
