Blend
92% Merlot
5% Cab. Franc
2% Cab. Sauv.
1% Malbec

For over a quarter century, we’ve experimented with oak. A lot. And what we discovered is full-bodied red wines need at least 20 months in barrel to age properly — a decision that sits well with our palates and less well with our accountant. Cost based winemaking demands turning around your barrels in 12-month cycles. Fortunately, we’re not aging wine for our accountant’s pleasure, but for yours. All our winemaking decisions get the same attention to detail as the Merlot does. And the results show in every bottle. On that, you have our word.

 

A Not-So-Little, Little Thing

The 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and the 1% Malbec is arrived at through a rigorous blending and tasting process, where we try more, less, a little more, a little less, and then maybe a little more until we get it just right. It’s a full day’s worth of purple teeth.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We Smell - Fruitcake spices. Like cloves and nutmeg. We Taste - Dried dark fruit. Fig even.
Food Pairing Notes
BBQ’d baby back ribs. Put a little 5-spice in the sauce.
Other Notes
We’d Also Pair It With - In honour of our day-long blending process, how about an all-day hike? With a little Merlot as a reward at the end.
