Tasting Notes

This silky, velvety red exhibits a savory nose with hints of olive and continues to a core of juicy cherry fruit and spice on the palate. Round and soft with great acidity and fine tannins, it is a Rhone-like wine with a medium body and a robust Pinot Noir texture. Petit Verdot provides a strong structure, an inky purple color, and powerful blackberry and black pepper notes, forming the foundation of this complex wine. Cabernet Sauvignon lends a red-fruited body, Syrah provides finessed spice, and Merlot rounds and softens the palate. Pair with stews, roasts, lamb, duck, and game, seared tuna, or even a hearty salade Niçoise all go nicely, as do medium-hard and bleu-veined cheeses.

Process

Each of the separate lots was fermented separately in stainless steel, then brought together in a combination of second-year and third-year French Oak barrels for maturing.

Varietals

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Malbec, 9% Syrah, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Corot Noir.
