2015 Aluel "Coat of Arms"
2018 Seattle Wine Awards Double Gold Medal Winner!
2018 Platinum from Wine Press Northwest Platinum Competition!
The "Coat of Arms" is our flagship Bordeaux-style red blend that captures the essence of the very best that the vintage has to offer.
This Merlot-dominant blend is inspired by our love of Right Bank Bordeaux wines. On the nose, this plush wine showcases beautiful dark stone fruit and red fruit qualities, as well as sage, star anise, wet gravel, vanilla, and hints of cedar and violet. On the palate, the wine presents nice acidity and moderate tannins, and is filled with red cherries, plums, and just a touch of graphite.
73% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Petit Verdot
