Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In the 2016 vintage, Cabernet Franc brings bright red fruit and savoury notes, Cabernet Sauvignon adds dark fruit, earth and structure, and Merlot wraps everything up with a smooth, dark plum generosity. The complete wine shows black currant, blackberry, plum, cassis, vanilla and cloves.
Vineyard Notes
In 2016, we were presented with an excellent year. The early spring heat, cooler start to the summer, and extended fall season allowed more hang-time for developing complexity in the fruit and phenomenal balance in the wine.
