A right bank blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Grapes are farmed under strict biodynamic principles before being harvested by hand. In the winery, vinification is simple, grapes are crushed and fermented on the skins for a few weeks before being pressed into stainless steel for fermentation. The wine is then racked into used oak barrels to age before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Graceful AND powerful, this bottle opens with black cherries, dried violets, cigar box and a hint of black tea. The palate is a welcome contradiction of juicy red cherries, cacao and an almost minty earthiness. Firm tannins and structure abound with plenty of freshness. Cellar if you want, or give this some air and pair with anything going on the grill this weekend, from burgers and brats to choice cuts of beef and dig in.
