Description

Varietal: 80% Merlot, 14% Cab Franc, 6% Malbec. Aged for 27 months in 67% new French oak barrels;
33% 4-year-old French oak barrels.

Taste: Hints of crushed rock and dusty tannins weave through the cherry, red currant and fresh thyme
aromatics. The initial mellow quality momentarily lures you into thinking this is a lighter wine, but soon after opening, the wine’s depth emerges to change your opinion. Balanced tannins and oak aging frame complex layers of distinct dark cherry-wrapped limestone minerality. Traces of fine herbs and blood orange zest enhance the experience as the flavors linger on the palate.
