Yantra (yawn-tra) is Sanskrit for “instrument” or“machine.” A Yantra is a mandala — a map, chart or geometric pattern which represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically — a microcosm of the universe from a human perspective.
Tasting Notes: Yantra is characterized by a persistent fruitiness and pleasant freshness; it is interesting for its complex simplicity. The wine displays soft, ripe tannins, a rich mouthfeel and a long finish.
Varietal Composition: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
