After completing primary and secondary fermentation, this wine was gently racked into oak barrels where it rested for 18 months before final blending. Displaying a beautiful ruby hue, this elegant Cabernet greets you with complex notes of vanilla, black currant, wood spice and anise. On the palate, it is soft and plush, while at the same time delivering a wonderful, lively acidity. There is a mix of dark fruit and a subtle hint of dusty cocoa. Silky chocolate notes and soft, supple tannins round out the lingering finish.
Aging: 20% new French oak, medium and medium plus toast (Coopers: Franςois Freres, Seguin Moreau, and Canton)
