Winemaker Michael Westrick Notes
WINEMAKING Bordeaux varietals are hand-picked in the cool of the night, brought to the winery and carefully cluster sorted, destemmed (but not crushed) and gently pumped to fermenters. The grapes are left to soak for 4-5 days. Yeast strains are chosen carefully for each varietal in the winery. For example, FX10 is chosen for Cabernet Sauvignon to emphasize dark berry fruit flavors and to add a spicy component. Following two years of aging in French oak, the wines are bottled then held in bottle from 6-12 months before release. WINE The 2014 Notre Vue “Bordeaux-style” blend is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Powerful aromatics reminiscent of wild blackberries, black cherry, black currants and violets leap ...more... from the glass. Those flavors, coupled with vanilla, leather and cedar, unfold and linger on the rich palate. Pair this wine with cheeses, a marinated ribeye steak and braised short ribs.
