Savour notes of dark fruit, including plums, cranberries, and cassis, plus hints of vanilla on the nose. This soft and juicy wine is medium to full-bodied with hints of chocolate on the palate, and a lengthy finish.
Silver - San Francisco Wine Competition in 2022
65% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, crushed, and cold soaked for 4 days before inoculation with select Bordeaux yeast strains. Pump overs were done every 4 hours to enhance colour and fruit characteristics. Each varietal was vinified and barrel matured separately for 15 months in a combination of 50% American oak barrels, and 50% French oak barrels. Our winemaker carefully crafted the final blend once the wine was removed from barrels.
