For the wine snob: Hand-sorted grapes undergo an extended cold-soak followed by primary fermentation in stainless steel. Following primary, the wine is racked to French oak barrels for 18 months aging. Decidedly ripe-vintage Bordeaux inspired – 92% Cabernet Sauvignon & 8% Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
For the rest of us: Savory and sweet that is immediately apparent in the clove/baking spice meets cassis/dark berry aromatics. Smooth tannin structure with high tones, opulent fruit, and notes of espresso and dark chocolate.
