An amusing blend of Bordeaux and Rhone style reds.
Bill's method of developing his blended wines is to make the individual wines as stand-alone wines first and then, knowing their individual taste characteristics, he blends them together to create his multi-award-winning blends.
When all this wine making and blending is done there are still some barrels of these fine wines remaining to which one of his wine making colleagues recently referred as "an excess of riches."
Amused by this concept Bill decided to select certain barrels of these wines and make a non-typical blend inspired by legendary Australian winemaker Murray Tyrrell famous for his "Long Flat Red."
There is a nice, brightly-focused acidity throughout which tends to make the wine seem leaner and not the heavy red it first appeared but that's just not true as the wine will show with its medium body and then a satisfying, if fairly rapid, finish.
