    Tasting Notes:

    This compelling wine is big on aromas and flavors. Well-constructed with ripe dark fruit that perfectly integrates sweet toasty oak and silky tannins, which will allow for early drinking. Although, don’t be fooled. This wine can go the distance in the cellar, further developing its nuanced and concentrated character.


    Harvest Notes:

    This fruit is sourced from the winery’s best estate Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. After an extensive selection process three Merlot blocks and three Cabernet Sauvignon blocks, each planted on different sites with different rootstocks and varying in age, were chosen to make this perfect blend. This vintage withstood a growing year of extreme rainfall and extreme heat to find its way successfully into the barrel.

    Barrel Aging:

    The wine is aged for twenty two months in both new and one year old Traditional Chateau French oak barrels
