Description

This wine was crafted by Denis and May Britt Malbec. It was aged for 22 months in 100% French Oak and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (71%), Cabernet Franc (14%), Merlot (8%), Malbec (4%) and Petit Verdot (3%). "The 2013 growing season began early, with a warm and dry spring, and the weather stayed absolutely beautiful all the way through to an early harvest."

Vineyard Notes

A warm, dry spring brought early bud break, helped with canopy vigor and berry size and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set under sunny skies. With the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July, temperatures were consistently in the zone for optimal vine activity, resulting in notably healthy vines as fruit went through veraison and started ripening. The August 1 start of harvest was the earliest in recent history. White wine grapes came in at a furious pace throughout that month, moving on to lighter reds by early September. Two brief mid-September rains had virtually no impact on the grapes.

Ratings

James Suckling - 92 points (December 2016) Wine Enthusiast - 90 points Wine Advocate - 90 points (December 2017). Scented of sautéed herbs, damp soil and moss-covered bark over a black and red currant core with touches of bay leaves and stewed plums. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and chewy with plenty of freshness lifting the earthy palate, finishing with an herbal lift. Jeb Dunnuck - 90+ points (December 2017).
