2015 axr fab 4
The AXR dream was started when four friends were sitting around a table, doing what you do with a glass of Napa Cabernet in your hand… share, dream, laugh, and occasionally sip! The room was filled with an intense passion for wine and a good story: this is where AXR was born and the journey was created. The FAB 4, as we call them, are our three founders: Kelly Trevethan, Mark Schratz and Don Van Laeken, as well as our Consulting Winemaker, Jean Hoefliger.
The FAB4 is a unique field blend we will make every year that brings together characters that yield passion, humor, care and integrity with the goal of bringing a smile to your face – just like our FAB4. The 2015 FAB 4 blend in 2015 is: 78% Petite Sirah, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 1% Zinfandel with 49 cases produced.
