This Ambassador Envoy right-bank Bordeaux style blend from Red Mountain AVA consists of 53% merlot, 26% cabernet sauvignon, 16% cabernet franc, 3% malbec and 2% petit verdot. The wine spent 22 months in 66% new french oak barrels. Raspberry aromas jump out of the glass, along with hints of red plum, orange peel, cigar box and freshly cut grass. The palate is plush with plump cocoa and black cherry flavors. It is an easy-drinking wine that is more complex than it’s meant to be. 225 cases produced.
