Nose

Blackberry, cassis, coffee and black tea define a wine that has reached full phenological ripeness without losing its essential cabernet character.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is rich and open, with sweet tannins that are nutty, ripe and silky.

Growing Conditions

Make no mistake, this is a true mountain wine: concentrated, dense and packed with flavor. Yet it also possesses a seamless elegance that belies its intensity.

Fifteen days macerating on the skins before being gently pressed to French oak barrels, approximately 50% new.
