Tasting notes

Ruby Leigh, like a great dancer, is light on its feet, rich in contour, supremely balanced and deeply expressive. A silky yet firm mouth feel, together with layers of black cherry, currant, raspberry and blackberry flavors leads to a long, smoke brushed finish. The fruit and earth shine in this broad, deep and defined style. Black tea, licorice, bittersweet cocoa and tobacco notes ride through the lingering finish. Gonna have a long, showy life. 

Food pairing: Bacon mac ‘n’ cheese, Gouda stuffed roasted portabellos
Movie pairing: Mary Poppins, the original

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Ruby Leigh is an extraordinary young lady, gifted of many artistic and conceptual talents. Hers is a spirit from the wild places in the cosmos, restless and searching for light and experience. One of the Three Original Wines, it has, since its inception in 2004, been driven by merlot and cabernet franc, supported by malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Like our daughter, each vintage of Ruby Leigh is a classic, lovely and vibrant in its youth and undoubtedly astounding in its evolution.
