cellar notes

We practice the old-world winemaking method of bâtonnage, or stirring the lees. This process enhances the wine’s structure, gives it extra body, increases the aromatic complexity, and produces a velvety rich mouthfeel.

Each wine ages for up to 20 months in French oak barrels. 40% is new, with the balance in used French oak barrels. Drinkable upon release, our wines benefit from additional cellar aging, which allows the wine’s complexities to develop and reveal themselves.

tasting notes

This distinctive Bordeaux varietal blend provides a unique treat for the senses. The nose offers dense, rich aromatics of brambly wild blackberry mingled with traces of black currant and forest floor. The entry softens as the wine opens, while the mildly spicy texture delivers a lively platform for the delicious flavors. Dark cherry bathes the mouth while layers of subtle cedar, black and red currant join in. A lovely cocoa essence with traces of blueberry appears mid-palate to complement the juicy yet dry flavors.

If enjoyed before mid-2016, decant for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy pairing this sophisticated wine with Parmesan-crusted lamb shanks, or an herb-roasted rack of pork with morel cream sauce.
