2016 Le F.P.


Blend: 44% Merlot – Carhartt Vineyard, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon – Riata Oaks Vineyard, 21% Cabernet Franc – Curtis Vineyard, 2% Petit Verdot – Curtis Vineyard.

Nose (aromas): dark mixed berries, clove and nutmeg spice, dried tobacco 

Flavor (palate): black currant, Earl Grey tea, hint of peppercorn

Winemaker’s Notes: Formerly known as Fourplay, this Bordeaux blend is one that is always destined for wine club shipments, and definitely a fan favorite. With its composition of dark fruit, spice, balanced acidity, and elegant finish, this wine is perfect to pair with almost any medium to full bodied meals. Le F.P is a natural with grilled meats and wild game, but can equally stand up to hearty vegetarian stews or soups, even a spicy Taco Tuesday night! Or – sip it fireside with a loved one. 

Ageing Potential: Now – 2033

Additional Notes:  The major varietals associated with Bordeaux wines or blends are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, each of which we make as separate varietal expressions at Carhartt. The blending of these varietals together is a happy marriage, and with time, this wine will continue to evolve and unfold.
