This structured red offers touches of black cherry, earth and graphite on the long and pleasant finish.
Wine Maker Notes
Grapes are grown on 9 hectares (22 acres) of vineyards planted at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare, 100 meters (328 feet) above sea level. The soil is mainly sandstone, with some skeletal components.
(80% Cabernet Sauvignon/10% Petit Verdot/10% Alicante). Fuit from a 22 acre south/southwest facing parcel situated at 328 feet was macerated and fermented separately for 20-25 days. The wine aged for 18 months in new French oak barriques followed by six months in bottle. Powerful yet elegant, the Cabernet provides smooth tannins and structure while the Alicante and Petit Verdot add ripe, round and sunny red fruit expressions.
Enjoy with red meat, game, and mature cheeses.
