The name Kilravock comes from the castle in Scotland which the Rose clan has called home and to where we can trace our ancestry. We chose to use this name for our signature red wine blend, which allows us the opportunity to make the best wine possible from each vintage, hand-selecting the barrels that we feel produce the best wine. It also allows us to use any grapes that we have available to us to make the best blend, not just limiting us to Bordeaux varietals.
This vintage of Kilravock begins with aromas of dark plums, cherry, cocoa and touches of leather . On the palate, it is fruit-forward with hints of caramel, toast and just a touch of oak. It’s a bold wine with strong tannins that will soften over time. This wine can certainly be cellared for years to come, or enjoyed now after a bit of decanting or with a steak.
