Each vintage is special in its own, and the 2018 vintage is no different. It has combined the powerful qualities of the 2015 vintage along with the brilliant structure seen in 2016 and created an elegant wine with a strong backbone. The growing season was ideal, without extreme heat or untimely rains. We had the perfect window and conditions for harvest, September 10 to October 10 with warm days and cold nights allowing impeccable ripening of the grapes. The nose showcases more earthy aromas than fruit, highlighting nutmeg, cypress and roses. On the palate, the entrance is supple with luscious mouth filling tannins and expresses flavors of black cherries, candied apples and licorice. This beautifully layered blend carries through to a long, spicy finish with hints of balsamic, cloves and white pepper.
52% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
