Enticing aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, brown sugar, molasses and baking spices.
The palate is rich and textured with flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, cocoa powder and a hint of wet gravel. The finish is long and smooth, with supple tannins and bright acidity.
The 2014 vintage brought a perfect growing season with warm, dry conditions that allowed the fruit to develop full, concentrated flavors. Sustainable farming practices throughout the growing season were tailored to each block with the assistance of aerial photos produced using NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) technology. All fruit was hand-picked and sorted in the vineyards.
The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A portion of the wine was barrel-fermented to provide a more textured palate and silky tannins. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for aging.
