Winemaker Dean Sylvester Notes
The fruit was fermented at an average of 85°F with gentle pump-overs for excellent flavor and color extraction. The wine was aged for 19 months and blended to attain balance. Merlot increased texture and softness on the mid-palate and Malbec added complexity and additional layers of ripe fruit flavors to the wine. Balance and finesse are prominent in this classic Cabernet. From the enticing aromas to to the long, smooth finish, this wine is captivating and delicious. It�s a blend of lush fruit with aromas of deep blackberry, currant and toasted oak. The wine has rich texture and flavors of cherry, plum and toasty vanilla. With ample fruit, good weight in the mid-palate and velvety tannins, this beautifully balanced wine is ready ...more... to enjoy now, but with aging potential to 2014
