Boreas

2012

Red Blend

Grand Valley, CO

The god of the North wind and bringer of cold winter air, the second vintage of the wine that led to the creation of Anemoi Wines, the 2012 Boreas is blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Created as a “vin de terroir” (wine of the land), the percentages of each variety in the wine represent the percentage of each as it is planted in our original Riverside Vineyard. Aged nearly two years in all new French, American, and Hungarian oak, Anemoi’s flagship wine is back in a big, bold way.

Garnet color. Bright aromas and flavors of berry pie, cocoa, and spice with a silky, lively, fruity medium body and a compelling, medium-length finish with accents of sandalwood, nuts, and earth with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A nicely balanced and flavorful blend.
