Bouchet is slang word for both Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in different areas of Bordeaux region. The first bottling of this blend was in 1984, which resulted in the first Meritage blend in Santa Barbara County. Cabernet Franc is from un-grafted vines planted in 1976. Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 2008 and Merlot in 2016. This powerful and smooth Bordeaux style blend reflects the focus of Cabernet Sauvignon and spicy aromatics of Cabernet Franc, with additional body with fruit of Merlot.
