Wine maker notes
This complex and structured wine is a blend of fourclassic Bordeaux varietals. The intense edge of Cabernet Sauvignon combines with Malbecís blackberry flavors, Merlotís roundness and finesse, and Petit Verdotís firm structure for a wine with layer upon layer of nuanced flavors and depth. Aromas of toasted nutmeg and cocoa powder accent the dark fruit flavors of black cherry, ripe raspberry and currant. Well-structured tannins round out this vintage with a smooth, rich finish. Grapes were hand sorted and gently crushed. Native yeast was used for fermentation and the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel. After primary fermentation the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the tannins. After 30 months aging the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
