Corvidae Rook Red Blend 2011
Corvidae's Rook is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot. The ripe and rich Cabernet flavors prevail - juicy loganberry, cassis, and a base note of black plum and cherry. Syrah adds richness, and Merlot smooths the velvet finish.
Crows have a long history in folklore and mythology. "Rook" references the legendary luck associated with crows. Corvidae's "Rook" blended red wine is a crowd-pleaser. It's a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah from three distinctly different vineyards - Ironbird Vineyard, in Southern Oregon's Applegate Valley, Erickson Vineyard, in Washington's Yakima Valley, and St. Isidore Vineyard, in the high priced and trendy Walla Walla appellation.
