2022 Vintage Saved: 9-May-2023
Deep, dark, opaque black-purple color holds superbly to the rim, staining the glass when swirled. The slightly restrained nose harmoniously combines blackcurrant, ripe black-cherry, chocolate & cedar aromas. The palate is fresh with fine-grained tannins giving good grip. Juicy, ripe blackcurrant & black-cherry fruit lingers on the finish alongside a structure of fine tannins & cedary sweet spices. The end of the finish has a graphite character. 04/23 DCAMW

With waves of sweet, perfectly ripe, luscious blackberries, you also find cassis, black cherries, creamy tannins, cigar box, lead pencil, and spice. The wine is deep in color with intensity, layers of fruit, and a finish that takes hold of your palate, and doesn't want to let go, leaving you with fruit that builds and resonates. The wine is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11.5% Merlot and 5.5% Cabernet Franc, 14.1% ABV. The harvest took place September 8 - September 23. The yields were 30 hectoliters per hectare.
