Nose

On the nose notes of blackberry, dark cherry and a hint of sage.

Palate

On the palate flavors of raspberry and cassis, with undertones of cayenne pepper and nutmeg. The rich mouthfeel is enhanced by the lush tannins, granting this wine great elegance and concentration

Winemaking

The Cabernet Franc grapes were destemmed but not crushed, and sent to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank. After a 3 day cold soak, the fruit was naturally warmed and inoculated with yeast, undergoing fermentation for 16 days. The free run only was sent to french oak barrels, 50% new oak, where it aged for 18 months.

Appearance

intense dark purple color.
