This Cabernet-inspired blend displays classic notes of cassis, tobacco

climate of our outstanding vineyard sites.

“The 2016 Red is fabulous. Inky, bold and pungent, with terrific fruit
density, the 2016 has so much to offer. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice,
grilled herbs, leather and licorice burst out of this vibrant Cabernet
Sauvignon-base blend.”

“The 2016 Red Wine checks in as a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon,
20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Brilliant notes of
cassis, tobacco leaf, damp earth, cedary herbs, and graphite all emerge
from this concentrated, remarkably pure, elegant Bordeaux blend hat
has building tannins and a great, great finish. It tastes like it costs three
times the price.”

BARREL AGING Aged in French oak, 55% new and 45% neutral, for 22 months. Coopers include Taransaud, Sylvain, Bel Air and Dejarnac.

Winemaker’s Notes: Utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and dark notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined, a study in elegance.
