2013 Sur La Mer

2013 Sur La Mer

Sur La Mer in French means “on the sea” and is a reference to the romantic seaport city in France where Leslie, one of the owners, was born. This right bank Bordeaux style blend consists of 58% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Malbec.  The juicy fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry are complimented by violet and a soft herbal complex to create a complex wine that will pair with a variety of dishes.

Tasting notes

Blackberry, violet, cocoa powder, vanilla, toffee, and boysenberry lead to a rich palate with a hint of herbal spice.  The finish lingers of black cherry and licorice.

Production notes

Stainless steel fermentation for 9-14 days, barrel aged for 15 months in 42% new French oak and 58% neutral French oak.

Other notes

Winemaker Notes:  This elegant Bordeaux style wine is a Merlot based blend with excellent balance.  A unique blend of all five Bordeaux varietals, this blend is always one of the most challenging and rewarding wines to create.  The vineyards that go into this blend come from several different AVAs making this a truly unique Washington wine.
