2017 The Roshi
Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA
47% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot
Aged 2 years in French Oak, this Bordeaux Blend from Happy Canyon is built to stand the test of time. Rich, bold, yet finessed with fruit and full of life, The Roshi embodies Paradise Springs's journey from east to west. The Roshi is a full-bodied wine composed of four of the five noble Bordeaux varieties. It has a robust tannic structure and an underlying acidity allowing it to be age worthy. On the nose dark fruits like brambleberry stand out, followed by a spicy cedar note. On the plate those same dark fruits translate to a fruit-forward wine with rich tannins and balanced acidity, which help make this wine a great match with food.
