El Dorado, California ~ 2018 Vintage
Aromas of Nougat, bittersweet dark cocoa nibs and wine-soaked wood give way to juicy plum, cassis, black licorice, roasted red bell pepper, bay leaf, and black pepper. This wine bursts with fruit and savory flavors that lead into round, generous tannins.
Each varietal was fermented separately in their own oak regimen. After some initial aging, we picked the perfect lots to blend for a balanced wine and finished aging the final blend in a mix of new, 2 & 3 year French Oak before bottling.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petite Sirah ~ 13.5% abv
