Faux Pas 2013 Sonoma County

Faux Pas 2013 Sonoma County

Around the world, tightly bound tradition rules it a Faux Pas, or misstep, if Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted in the same vineyard; they are never blended together into a wine. At Michel-Schlumberger we have created a Faux Pas that is a full-flavored, bold, textured, and welcoming red wine that brings pleasure to the forefront and leaves the rulebook behind.
