VINTAGE NOTES

Late winter rains followed by ideal spring growing conditions set the stage for the 2021 vintage. Mild temperatures punctuated this drought year with only a few heat spikes during the summer months that led to early ripening and allowed us to harvest some early blocks with incredible old-world charm and intriguing complexity. Grapes that were harvested later benefitted from the longer hang time and ripened perfectly, displaying great depth with distinct regional character. The ideal weather of 2021, coupled with lower yields, produced wines that offer intense aromatics and flavors with excellent aging potential.

WINEMAKING

For the 2021 vintage, our winemakers blended 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 6% Merlot and 2 % Petit Verdot. Fermented in 40% French oak barriques, 40% new and 60% two and threeyear-old barriques and 60% in stainless steel tanks, the wine was then aged for 20 months in French oak, 40% new and 60% two and three-year-old barriques.

TASTING NOTES

On the nose: Fresh red and black berries, black plum skin, violets, dried herbs, sandalwood and black soil.
On the palate: Energetic, youthful, concentrated dark fruits, with toasted grains, star anise, lightly toasted oak and a hint of mineral / gunpowder.
