Checkmate 2013 750ml

Our handcrafted 2013 Checkmate—a “Grandmaster,” offers notes of roasted coffee, cocoa and black currants. To round out the flavors in this full-bodied, beautifully rich red colored and opulent textured wine, we use small amounts of Petite Verdot and other varietals. The wine aged for 22 months using French Oak barrels.
