Grande Fleur de Lyeth Reserve 2009
A lovely Californian take on the classic 'Bordeaux blend', beautifully crafted and barrel-aged.
Lyeth Estate was established by Chip Lyeth in 1981. Having travelled through Bordeaux in the late 1970s, Chip discovered what the Bordelais had known for centuries: that by blending you could create a beautiful, distinctive wine that was greater than the sum of its parts. The estate makes a wine called Meritage using the three top grapes of the Médoc: Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot. In the exclusive Fleur de Lyeth Reserve, however, the third grape is Petite Sirah. The 'Californication' of the Bordeaux blend has been a big hit with customers of our American sister company WSJ Wines. And now it's available to you. Aromas of bright cherry and spicy oak. Silky, rich, with luscious dark fruit. Enjoy on its own or with grilled meats.
