K2 is a Bordeaux Blend made Casanel's Winemaker Katie DeSouza and wine consultant Katell Griaud from 100% Virginia grapes. The blend consists of 40% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Carmenere, and 7% Petit Verdot. These different varietals were picked at different times to respect their individual ripeness time and were treated separately in tanks and in barrels until blending.
Full of rich red and black fruits with luscious acidity, this wine has an excellent balance with a touch of red pepper and cocoa nibs to the finish. Named after Katie & Katell who create this blend each year together. The two of them exponentially increasing each other's winemaking skills with every wine we make.
