Tasting notes

Gorgeous from start to finish, with gobs of silky layers jammed with raspberry, cassis and plum flavors peppered with licorice, cedar and Earl Grey tea notes. Firmly structured through the finish to remain focused and pure in feel. The detailed finish is impressive and lingers interminably. Encore!

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.
