Gold Medal – 2022 SF Chronicle Wine Competition
Comstock Vineyards, Gustafson Family Vineyard
This Cuvée is an homage to my Grandfather, his love of wine, and his time in Bordeaux.
It is bursting with flavors of concentrated cassis, currant, dark plum, coco, violet and a slight hint of vanilla and spice. Enjoy now or let it lay down for a little while and pull it out for a special occasion. We love to enjoy it with a beautifully cooked steak.
