2021 Octant Bordeaux Blend
The considerable Malbec component makes this Octant blend comparable to offerings from the Pauillac sub-appellation of Bordeaux, known for potency and vigor. The varietal proportions have shifted to a more full-bodied frame with velvety underpinnings. Willowy tannins and keen acidity enable blackberries, boysenberries, and cherries to drench the mid-palate. The flavors are elegantly orchestrated toward a pronounced finish as hints of dried cranberries, tea leaves, and loamy earth coalesce, deliberate, and linger.
