THE WINE
The fruit was hand-sorted and fermented in small lots at an average of 85°F with gentle pump-overs for excellent flavor and color extraction. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 18 months and blended to attain balance. Merlot increased softness on the mid-palate while Malbec added texture and additional layers of ripe flavors to the wine. The Petit Verdot brings flashes of muscle to the blend.
