Deep black cherry, fresh cut hay and strong spice aromatics of fennel and clove.  Flavors are deep racy black cherry, clove and nutmeg with an earthy component and dried herbs like coriander and cut hay.  This is a sublime and soft medium-bodied blend with broad mouthfeel and lots of spicy characters.  The tannins are soft and round.  The wine finishes with dark earthy characters and a shot of black cherry.

Varietals- 65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyards- Chatom and Rolleri Vineyards

Aging/Cooperage- 18 months in neutral oak

Production- Grapes were hand-picked and gently crushed into small bins for fermentation.  Approximately 10% of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were left uncrushed and on-the-stems to add complexity.  Yeast was added to this lot and the grapes fermented over 12 days with only a small amount of nutrients added to assist the fermentation. The Merlot grapes were pressed off of skins near the end of fermentation. The Cabernet sat on the skins for 10 additional days of extended maceration after fermentation, it was then pressed off of the skins and into small new French oak barrels for secondary (or malolactic) fermentation.  After the secondary ferment, the wine was gently racked off of the primary lees.  Minimal amounts of sulphur dioxide were added and the wine was then placed in neutral French oak barrels for 18 months of aging.  It was then bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
