2018 Baldacci Family Vineyards Fraternity
If you are looking for a wine that pairs with just about anything in your pantry or freezer, you have found it in the 2018 Baldacci Family Vineyards Fraternity blend. Don't roll your eyes and scoff about red blends....certainly not this one! The picture above should really be all that you need to know about how much we enjoyed this wine. The bottle is empty! This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Syrah (7%) and Petit Verdot(2%) is exceptionally balanced and a real palate masseuse! This wine opens with grandma's homemade preserves, dried spices and some incredible hints of earthiness. It is absolutely full of fruit flavors like juicy bing cherries, ripe plum and multi-berry cobbler, including the taste of spice racks flavors in the crust. It is always incredible to sip a wine like this, sit back and just laugh at how wonderful it is at this price point. This wine is young but it drinks like it has been bottled for 10 years. The color on this wine is absolutely captivating and you just want to get lost in those legs. We applaud Michael Baldacci on this lovely bottle.
