97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot. The fourth Cuvée vintage was released on March 21, 2011. The Cuvée honors the owners daughter, Sophia. This fruit forward wine is lush and balanced with ripe cherry, cocoa powder and vanilla characters, and notes of red cherry and rose hips. 34 barrels produced.
"A beautiful Bordeaux blend, brimming with blackberries, cherries, currants, mocha, herbs and smoky oak. It’s dry and softly impressive now, and the tannic structure suggests further aging for a few years."
Big & Bold
Smooth & Supple
This was a lovely, fragrant wine, reminiscent of opening a bottle of perfume. It was full of luscious fruit--blueberries and figs. Almost a contradiction in itself, it was sweet and somewhat gentle, yet it also embodied a full character.
