Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Cousin Idd’s composition has changed from vintage to vintage, but the goal has always been the same: to make a Bordeaux blend with focused, spicy red fruit and a harmonious tension between acid and tannin. This year, it’s the fresh red fruit and spice of Cabernet Franc in the driver’s seat with Malbec and Cab Sauv adding layers of depth, tannin and more spice. This is a food-friendly wine that will evolve beautifully over the next 5+ years. It’s also one of our largest blends of the year at only 9 barrels.
