Palate

Notes of fresh boysenberry, black raspberry, & rhubarb pie combine with violet candy, sage and cardamom to create a boldwine with a great sense of balance. Cellar for at least one year after receipt, and DECANT for at least three hours when young. This wine will age beautifully for at least 25 years

Growing Conditions

Hexameter is the meter that Ovid used in his greatest poem: Metamorphoses. This form of verse is uniquely suited to the telling of long and inspiring tales that stand the test of time. We aim to recreate these qualities in the Hexameter wine, featuring our Pritchard Hill estate’s most profound and compelling Cabernet Franc as its core. Hexameter is only available in some years — when the vines and stars align.
