Tasting Notes

Release Date: Fall 2022

The nature of high-altitude, cool, coastal Bordeaux blends is refreshingly different. Lower alcohols and more soil-driven flavors with good acidity are what we deliver, with our constant theme, longevity, always present.

In 2018, although technically a drought year, the harvest started in late September and ran until mid-October. Cool temperatures prevailed, allowing for a relaxed pace. All fermentations were natural, with no additions. After two years in barrel, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered

This Cabernet is very expressive on the nose with scents of brown spice, plum, cherry and of course, black currant. Relatively restrained tannins on the palate with flavors of currant, sage, and mint, powerful yet with beautiful restraint.

Expect many years of development in the bottle.
