Our Richard the Lion-Heart is a blend of all six of the Noble Red Bordeaux varietals each of which is grown and carefully nurtured at our Rennie Vineyard in Yorkville. For this regal wine, we select our favorite barrels of each varietal and mix them into a harmonious blend. It has been aged in 100% French oak barrels for 21 months. 

Best of Class- Califoria State Fair

Our 2016 Blend is comprised of:

  • 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 20% Petit Verdot
  • 15% Merlot
  • 5% Carmenere
  • 5% Cabernet Franc
  • 5% Malbec

A handsome concoction of deep, acidic berries, our Richard the Lion-Heart has been winning awards and recognition since we first released it back in 1995. And after all these years of careful creation – 23 to be exact – it’s become clear to us that this Noble Red blend is special because it gains immense complexity by have all six of these grape varietals working synergistically.
