WINERY NOTES



Description To blend or not to blend, that is often a winemaker’s question. Elevage, our proprietary blend, explores the idea that multiple personalities can indeed coexist harmoniously in the world of wine. Take the austerity of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, blend it with the roundness of Merlot, add the aromatic highlights of Petit Verdot, the savory notes or Cabernet Franc and voila, a complex symphony is written. The 2018 vintage brought the return of cool weather which in turn brought a freshness and a layered depth to the wines that is delightful. The finesse, grace and complexity of the aromatics of this cool vintage will be one to remember. Aroma: This wine is super expressive with aromas of blackberry, cocoa powder with hints of mint, clove and espresso. Flavor: Ripe and intense with flavors blackberry, mocha and a hint of vanilla. In terms of mouthfeel, it is medium-bodied with super silky tannins, a round and viscous mid-palate ends with a nice long finish with some bright acidity in the end.
