The winery harvested with the finest sorting machines made today, the Pellenc Selectif harvesters, which pick all ripe blocks of Cabernet Franc on the same day. They fermented traditionally in small tow and four-ton fermenters mixing by hand for 20 days developing beautiful extraction of flavors and tannins. Fermentation finished in puncheons and traditional Bordeaux barrels. The wine was aged on lees in a modern style, developing savory tones complimentary to the powerful fruit. After 15 months, the team blended and bottled their favorite fragrant Cabernet Franc puncheon with a couple ideal savory Merlot puncheons into this vibrant and youthful blend. Unfined and yeast filtered for clarity at bottling, this rich wine will age for a decade or more. Enjoy with a host of foods throughout the seasons.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot
