Winery Notes:  Inspired by the great chateaus of St. Emillion in Bordeaux France, we set out to create the Washington State standard for a Merlot and Cab Franc blend.  Inspired is an aromatic wine, with black cherry, raspberry, and boysenberry notes.  The flavors of red berries, espresso, toasty oak and a touch of mint, add to the amazing complexity of this blend. Inspired is a big, full-bodied wine that is supported by rich tannins and will age gracefully for quite some time.

A 72/28 blend of merlot and cabernet franc) Dark red. Complex aromas of currant, dark raspberry, mocha and peppery spices, with hints of chocolatey oak and mint; this reminded me of a Penfolds cabernet. Graceful and silky in the mouth, with good peppery, minty lift to the dark berry, chocolate and mocha flavors. Finishes with firm tannins, a light herbal component and sneaky length. Suave wine, especially for 14.6% alcohol. Aged in a combination of new French and American barrels.
