The 2012 Flanagan “Beauty of Three” proprietary red isdefined by its depth and richness. The wine has a classicFlanagan bouquet of violets and cassis. The palate delivers dark black fruits in balance with nuances of mocha and spice box. The supple structure and balance make this a lovely wine to drink now, but this is without a doubt the most powerful “Beauty of Three” to date.
Each year we have barrels of wine, produced in the same manner as our flagship wine, that don’t end up in our main release. Our Beauty of Three is a blend of these lots. We created the Beauty of Three to allow our winemaking team the leeway to not use every barrel of an "A" quality wine in our flagship blend. This allows us to compose our "perfect blend" without compromise. The Beauty of Three is not a second tier wine in that sense. . .rather, it is the first tier wine not used in the blend.
