About This Wine

Color: deep, dark ruby with touches of Ferrari red on the rim

On the nose: beautiful notes of toasted brioche, granite and dark cherry with licorice, violet and paprika

On the palate: soft but balanced entrance evolving on a tannic frame with touches of cherry and plum lingering on crème de cassis

Wine Profile

Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Winemaker Notes:

"Balanced and elegant wines are the hallmarks of the 2014 vintage, a rock star crop similar to 2012 in terms of the characteristics. The weather was near perfect, and, for the first time, there was no effect of the drought on the vines which by now were accustomed to the dry spring. Harvest began early and by mid-August even the Cabernet Sauvignon had ripened, thus protecting the acidity of the wines.

We had some heat spikes that delayed the phenolic ripeness and forced us to push extraction quite hard. The ripeness was there, but the color and tannins really took time to come out. Our 2014 red wines are powerful but with great structure. Patience was the key to this vintage."

-Jean Hoefliger
