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 in this Merlot-predominant Meritage were hand-harvested, destemmed, crushed, and cold soaked for 4 days before inoculation with select Bordeaux yeast strains. Pumpovers were done every 4 hours to enhance colour and fruit characteristics. Each varietal was vinified and barrel matured separately for 15 months in French oak barrels. Our winemaker carefully crafted the final blend once the wine was removed from barrels.
