Tasting notes

Fresh and inviting, with aromas of cherry, mocha, plum, barrel spices, anise and herb. The fine tannins, soft and generous, wrap around a core of black cherry, mint, pomegranate and coffee flavors, dancing around the tongue like a crazy thing. Drink today or whenever thirsty.

Kindred was first produced in 2008, and is driven by malbec and framed with cabernet sauvignon and merlot. The new label, launched for the 2015 vintage, features an image of a 275 year-old oak tree in McMinnville, Tennessee, where Chris's Dad was born. It remains a lovely kindred wine to the first cabin Bordeaux wines.
