Restrained

Restrained bottle

Restrained is the power of your hidden desires, the source of the wine that is going to help you discover your inner self. A wine to help you understand who you are, who you want to be friends with, and what you will want to do with your life.

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Restrained Red Blend is made up of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 9% Syrah, 8% Merlot, 5% Petite Sirah, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, aged in 17% new French oak. A new wine in the Secret Indulgence range, sporting very provocative packaging, this big, bold, hedonic beauty is anything but "restrained!" It explodes from the glass with crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and blueberry preserves notes with savory/meaty/earthy sparks and notions of truffles, black olives, charcuterie and Indian spices. Full-bodied, the decadently fruited palate is jam-packed with black fruit, framed by firm, ripe tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and tantalizing.
