Growing Season & Harvest:
The 2019 growing season continued a string of phenomenal vintages that goes all the way back to 2012. With no frost issues, and ideally timed March rains, the season got off to an early start. The weather throughout spring and summer was temperate and even, ultimately yielding near-average heat accumulation numbers for the season, and allowing the grapes to ripen at a leisurely pace. Harvest for our red grapes began in mid-September, with the fruit showing a perfect balance between bright natural acidity and lovely varietal flavors.
This alluring Bordeaux-varietal blend displays aromas of concentrated fruit and spice, with layers of red currant, cassis, cinnamon, vanilla and clove, as well as hints of earthy forest floor, wild sage and sweet toasty oak. On the palate, plush, impeccably balanced tannins carry the lush red and black fruit flavors to an elegant, lingering finish.Blend: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc

"Blended from 44% Cabernet Sauvignon; 36% Merlot; and smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cab Franc, this red is angular and quite focused. Concentrated tarry notes arrive early with a swath of blackberry preserves and brown-sugared apple skins; as the wine opens up, it remains sensationally plush while bringing in flavors of clove and sage."

TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with deep aromas and flavors of black fruit, dried leaves, and hints of flowers. Pair it with grilled lamb and enjoy!"
