This is the second vintage for this Bordeaux blend, the winery's reserve. The simple white label, with Mith in black letters and a black rose in silhouette, belies the quality within. Rather than go for the smooth ride, this wine seeks out the flavor hills on its way to a lightly buttery finish. Elegant and interesting, with clean, Cab-dominated red fruit flavors.
