Wine Review: This ruby colored red blend opens with pomegranate and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and boysenberry blend with notes of minerality and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and mild tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 53% of Potelle Two is made from grapes that are extremely exuberant making the bouquet extremely delicate (Cabernet Franc) with lots of extraction (Syrah) and raspberry and spices (Zinfandel). The balance is made of 41% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot both bringing power and strength. In the mouth the wine has a nice structure, the weight is good, it sits well, it is round and ample but it also presents a nice suppleness that balances the structure and ensure earlier drinkability. The finish is very long.
