Bordeaux meets Napa Valley. Although varietally Cabernet Sauvignon, this unusual wine is a Bordeaux-style blend that is composed of three varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Flinty mineral notes combine with hints of black rose and vanilla.
Many of the lots were punch cap fermented in one ton bins between 7-11 days. Small lots were tank fermented. Each was barrel aged separately in predominantly French oak for 32 months. They were selected, blended and racked before bottling. The wine is unfined.
"A little minty, with a clove and pepper edge to the black currant, carob and cedar flavors, but nice and dry, with a firm structure. Doesn’t seem like an ager. — S.H. (12/1/2008)" -Rated 86, Wine Enthusiast
