Winery Tasting Notes:
This blend portrays a delightful marriage between old-world and new-world wine styles. Traditional Bordeaux earthy notes are in harmony with California fruitiness. Nutmeg, saffron, and boysenberry stand out on the nose with juicy plum, sarsaparilla, ancho chile and cinnamon toast on the palate.
Winemaker's Production Notes:
Nikiara is Le Vigne Winery's flagship wine, whose namesake is a combination of names "Niki" and "Kiara", the two children of Owners Walter and Sylvia Filippini. This blend showcases the influence of Paso Robles terroir on the renowned structure and flavor of its constituent Bordeaux varieties. Structural tannins are ample, yet surprisingly smooth in the wine’s youth, due to the climate at our Domenico estate vineyard where much of this blend was grown.
