Frére Robaire is named for my brother Rob who is known for his humor, his even temper, modesty, intelligence and high principles.
This wine is likewise full of character. A Bordeaux blend: 49% Cabernet Franc,
46% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon all from the Four Gates Estate Organic Vineyard. The generous proportion of Cabernet Franc keeps this from being a big version of a Meritage blend. Its lush, but with reserve. It does not draw attention to its charms. They rest easily within the whole personality, happy to complement a meal without hogging the stage, adding richness and delight.
If Frére Robaire has even a little of the graciousness Rob has, you'll want to have it around all the time.
