Winemaker Dan Gehrs Notes
This truly Bordeaux styled blend is comprised of 85.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and equal amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, and Malbec making up the difference. With this vintage we continue the practice of using small batch, open top fermenters and hand punching to mix the cap and the juice. Aging was carried out in French oak barrels, 20% of which were new. This ripe, well sculpted Cabernet in the Bordeaux tradition is saturated in color. Aromas of black currant with hints of violet and spicy oak lead to smooth cassis-like flavors in the unforgettable finish.
