Tasting notes

Now in its 15th vintage, Ruby Leigh is an elegant right bank blend built on the historical and geographical examples of beautiful wines like Chateaux Cheval Blanc, Ausone and Pavie, with a focus on Merlot and Cabernet Franc from multiple superb vineyards across the Columbia Valley. Glorious aromas of mocha, mint, mineral and black and blue fruits. Voluptuous, with loads of silky tannins and endless length. Built to pirouette across the palate for ages, but damn tasty now.

Food pairing: Chinese-style crispy duck pancakes, Gouda stuffed roasted portabellos

Movie pairing: Mary Poppins, the original

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.
