Fragrant, ripe cassis and blackberry nose enhance with cedar and cinnamon through French oak maturation. This is a wonderful example varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.
WINEMAKING NOTES: Patience allowed for fruit to achieve flavour ripeness, prudence not to lose all that hard work through being too greedy. Typically, our oldest, most trusted blocks ripened a little early and were directed to complete fermentation in new French Oak barrels after 6 days skin maceration. Other blocks were allowed more time to macerate before being placed into oak after malo-lactic fermentation. Several rackings of the wine occurred and some batches maturing in new oak were swapped in to older oak and vice versa. Coopers from both Bordeaux and Burgundy have lent their hand to mature this wine. Our emphasis is to have long tannins yet sufficient opulent fruit to fill the palate.
