Tasting Notes: Dark cherry, fresh blueberry and cassis notes pop out of the glass immediately, and are underlined by subtle hints of spice, vanilla bean and dark chocolate notes.  The palate-entry bursts with ripe raspberry and blackberry elements.  The fruit profile is supported by a well-rounded tannin structure that carries the fruit through to an extended finish.  In classic Left Bank fashion, the Cabernet Franc blends into the wine to add brightness and a lush tannin profile.

Winemaker's Notes: Le Gauchiste pays homage to all great things from the left.  We commissioned NOLA-based artist, Terrance Osborne, to create a piece of art that detailed the culturally rich city of New Orleans.  We produced only one barrel of this left-bank inaugural blend, and bottled it in 1.5L magnums, along with five (only five!) hand-etched and painted 5L Jeroboams, availble at special request.
