Notes from the Winemaker:
Alliance is a Bordeaux Left-Bank style blend, an approachable wine that is ready to drink at release. It offers a nose of lavender and dried flowers, and a palate of chocolate and both red and black fruits, with a round, juicy mid-palate and a lingering finish. The Alliance cuvee is most like a red Pessac-Léognan style of wine, driven by our most aromatic lots of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon as a base for structure and weight.

Viticulture:
Captûre's estate fruit is grown at Tin Cross Vineyards. Every vine is organically farmed and maintained to meet rigorous field specifications, a practice which yields healthier, more sustainable vines that positively contribute to the longevity of the land and the quality of the fruit produced.
