Wine maker notes
A classic example of intensity tempered by elegance and finesse. A lush, fruity core of ripe blackberry, juicy red and black currant and sweet crème de cassis fleshes out steadily on the palate, interwoven with black currant leaf, mocha and a savory hint of black pepper. There’s a refreshing brightness to the fruit from the beginning all the way through to the lingering, velvety finish.

Technical notes
84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot fruit expression) and oak tanks (added complexity and depth of flavor) for a warm fermentation. A 26-day maceration maximized the extraction of color and flavor and polished the tannins for a rich, supple mouthfeel. The new wine was transferred to sixty-gallon French oak barrels (13% new) for malolactic fermentation, seamlessly integrating fruit and oak flavors. The wine was blended with complementary varieties though repeated tasting trials over 16 months barrel aging and bottled in May of 2013.
