Winemaker's Notes

Long known for our passion for Bordeaux varietals, we have expanded our portfolio to include our first wine blended from the classic and ancient varietals of the Cahors region of France. This release of Onyx is a blend of 54% Malbec, 23% Tannat, and 23% Merlot, all grown in our narrow-spaced, densely planted, hillside vineyards at our Rutherford Ridge Estate. The black wines of Cahors, by tradition and appellation law, can be produced from 70% Malbec, and only 30% Merlot and/or Tannat. It is our intent to follow the principle of this ancient tradition, with Malbec as the predominant varietal. This densely-colored red black wine opens with sweet, silky, round fresh red and black fruits. Among red currants, blackberries and cream, cola, and tobacco, is a hint of briar and raspberry tea. Experience a smooth lingering smoky, blackberry and black pepper finish in this medium bodied wine. Enjoy now or cellar for the next five to ten years.
