Vineyard: 100% Erba Vineyard, Grapes: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot
Winemaker’s Notes: Beautiful aromas of blackberry, tea and chocolate leap from the glass. Spices and dark fruits complete the aromatic profile. On the palate, a rich enticing marriage of classic Cabernet flavors are balanced in an elegant oak-tinged framework. A long round finish adds even more complexity and nuance.
Cooperage: 50% new French oak and 50% older French oak
Vintage: The 2012 growing season was truly textbook – ideal bud break, flowering, berry set, warm summer and fall days with lots of foggy nights, ideal for flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon ripening.
