2017 Le F.P.


2017 Le F.P. – Bordeaux Blend –  14.5% abv

Blend: 46% Merlot – Carhartt Vineyard, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon -Grassini and TTT Vineyards, 19% Cabernet Franc – Carhartt and Rock Hollow Vineyards, 5% Petit Verdot – Curtis Vineyard.

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 meal.  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 – 2035

Additional Notes:  The major varieties 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. As cool as tasting each individual grape is, there are moments in time where the sum total is greater than the individual counterparts, and I believe we speak for most of our club in saying the Bordeaux Blend is a prime example of that concept.
