The small production, single vineyard wine is a blend of 76% Cabernet and 24% Merlot. The fruit is from eight year-old vines that are cropped excessively low to produce fruit that is rich and textured while elegant and refined. Black cherry, shaved chocolate, cassis and cigar box identify the aromas. Supple tannins, juiciness and long length in the palate define the mouthfeel.
Aged in French oak in the winery's caves for 21 months and aged for an additional 10 months in bottle, this wine has softened and promises to deliver.
