Wine Information :
78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot
Winemaker Tasting Notes :
Saturated purple color with notes of black cherry, chai spice, chaparral and toasted oak. Bramble fruit on the palate with round, supple tannins, herbal forest character, and a long finish.
Vintage Notes :
Though winter was mild and dry, spring storms delivered enough rain for the vines to thrive. Summer fog and cold nights slowed ripening while intensifying flavors and acidity. Whole berries were fermented in small tanks with limited pump-overs resulting in softer tannins. Once pressed, each lot was kept in separate barrels until assemblage. Eighteen months’ time in oak has produced a sensuous wine with great appeal. It will be most enjoyable over the next twelve to eighteen years.
