What a dramatic and challenging year.
Drought preceded a hard frost.
Heat spikes preceded harvest.
Small yields preceded small berries.
What followed was something very dark, powerful, and concentrated.
A dramatic year heralds a dramatic wine.
Cassis, raspberry and milk chocolate flavors throughout. The finish is long with velvety cherry and smoky dry finish. The tannins are young but very fine and velvety with a dense midpalate. 49% Cabernet Sauvignon,40% Merlot,6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot
