Broken Earth Quadrant Platinum BDX Bordeaux Blend 2010




This Bordeaux style blend offers ripe fruit with a luxurious texture. The components of this wine each offer their best assets and showcase beautifully together. The Merlot base creates the foundation for its medium body that lends itself nicely to a multitude of food pairings. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings the richness of such dark fruits as blackberries and blueberries. Dive deeper into the unending layers of this wine and you'll find the Petit Verdot offers you the velvet soft tannins you're looking for. Beyond that, you'll notice the Petite Sirah, though only a small percentage of this wine, is the powerhouse that gives this blend its gorgeous garnet color and long lasting finish. As always, our wines are meant to be shared with good food and great friends. Enjoy!

Wine EnthusiastTobacco smoke, blueberry pie and brown spice frame the nose on this well-priced, mostly Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend, which is bolstered with touches of Petite Verdot and Petite Sirah. There's a thick blackberry presence in the mouth and the alcohol is noticeable, despite being low.
