Tasting Notes



This has a huge nose of spice, black currant, dark cherry, sage, fresh fennel, black pepper, and chocolate. This is a very elegant but powerful wine on the palate. The complexity delivers from start to finish with dried red fruits, eucalyptus, and very nice undertones of cedar and licorice with a touch of baking spice. This wine is very balanced with bright acidity and dusty fine tannins that are very balanced on the long finish.

Winemaker Notes



This will be our 3rd release of the Champoux Vineyard Red Blend. This wine is a tribute to our long partnership with Paul Champoux and this unbelievable vineyard site. The components of this blend were fermented with a combination of traditional and pump-under techniques using a variety of 796 and PDM yeasts with 100% malolactic fermentation completed in French oak. We then aged the wine for 32 months in 85% new French oak barrels and then bottled it on the 16th of August. This wine has dark, deep, rich fruit flavors with a soft, but study tannin structure.



This will be a head turner for years to come.
