2015 Borderlands

On all journeys there comes a sudden moment of change. One night you fall asleep and the next morning the light is different, the air somehow exotic and foreign. A blend of equal parts Bordeaux and Rhône varietals, Borderlands is a tiny commemoration of the invisible divide between what was and what may be.

TASTING NOTES: There’s a stream train barreling through the desert. As it reappears after going through a tunnel, you can already smell the charcoal, fresh kindling and leather work gloves as you adjust the roses in your bag and rub the chamber of your Smith and Wesson. If it hadn’t been for that miner’s no-longer-lost love letter, you never would have found this place.
