Tasting Notes:

In addition to the normal Cellar Angels donation, 10% percent from all sales of this wine are donated by the Blanchard Family Wines to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The mission of SOWF is to provide full scholarship grants, education and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions. They also provide immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families.

This impressive bold wine is unforgettable as it opens with intense black fruit, violet and exotic spice. The dynamic, full-bodied palate leads with juicy black cherry, tobacco and spice. The finish has balanced sweet tannins and lingers, enticing another sip.

About the Winery
Blanchard Family Wines Growing up in Peoria, Illinois, James and Mark were as close as any two brothers could be and were often referred to as the Blanchard boys. However, as they grew into adulthood, differences of opinion and ideology drew them apart. James, the elder brother, went into the Air Force and became a military officer and helicopter pilot who served two tours in Iraq. Mark studied poetry and creative writing, focusing on authors who had protested the Vietnam War. Learn more
