A stunning expression of California in a complex Bordeaux blend, this wine is composed of one-third cabernet sauvignon, one-third merlot and balanced by malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot. The tannins are well integrated and the texture elegant and silky, making this a wine that is drinking beautifully now and will continue to reward with cellaring.

The folks behind Aperture believe that wine is an artistic expression as personal and universal as photography. So it only makes sense that father & son, Andy and Jesse Katz would finally find a way to work together to produce stunning wines from California. Andy Katz made his name as one of the greatest photographers of his generation, and his work graces coffee-table books, galleries, and album covers around the globe. While he was traveling the world for his art, he made a point of bringing along his son, Jesse, to experience it all with him. Over the years, they both benefited from an international wine education that even master sommeliers would envy— sipping wine with Olivier Leflaive and his family, working through the famous wine cellar of Cheval Blanc in Bordeaux and in a late-night tasting at Sassicaia were a few of the amazing wine experiences father and son had together.

It has all come full circle now with Aperture: Jesse makes critically acclaimed wine——and Andy supplies the photos. Andy’s vision, Jesse’s taste, smell, and touch… this is a 'dance of the senses' created by two gifted artists.

The 2018 Red Blend is composed of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 22% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The nose offers vibrant berry scents with accents of charcuterie, mint chocolate, cigar wrapper, violets and pencil shavings aromas, and the palate is powerful but featherweight, silky and fresh with a very long, layered finish. I love this balance of ripe fruit, mineral nuance, aromatic purity and structural power. This has the potential to grow into even more of a beauty with some time in bottle.
