One of our perennial favorites. This Bordeaux style blend shows a slightly more herbal approach to Californian Cabernet based wines, showing notes that some associate more with Cabernet’s birthplace, Bordeaux than California. Bro Deux is also one of our most cellar worthy wines. Brave and Maiden and 4 Palms bring ripeness to the blend and Vogelzang fresh fruit. The Crown Point adds acidity and complex savory notes to the wine.
