Faun Vineyards' 2005 Salado Creek Rubia is a full-flavored, remarkable blend that expresses a tantalizing combination of fruit, spice, and lushness. Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, the small percentage of Merlot contributes flavors of blackberry and plum with softer tannins, while the Cabernet Franc presents cocoa and pepper characteristics with slightly firmer tannins. The resulting blend exhibits remarkable levels of chocolate, cherry, and leather aromas and flavors that pair ideally with grilled or smoked hardy meats and sauces.

Named after proprietor J.D. Aguillar’s wife’s nickname, Rubia is one of the winery favorites and was made with the intentions of enjoying it alongside a delicious barbecue with the best of friends.
