The 2018 Vin Perdu is a blend of 38% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery notes of baked black cherries, plum preserves and blueberry pie with an undercurrent of freshly cracked black pepper, bacon and underbrush with fragrant wafts of licorice and violets. Full-bodied, rich and oh-so-seductive in the mouth, the palate reveals amazingly velvety tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with epic length and many, many layers. Delicious!
