Tasting Notes
The deep purple-ruby in the glass, this Reserve is fragrant and beautifully defined on the nose with aromas of macerated dark cherries, rich cassis, and candied violets which are further complexed with plum, dried herbs and cedar forest floor accents. The palate is youthful and vibrant, bursting with black and blue fruits, plum flavors, along with notes of warm fig and dark chocolate shavings. This wine is creamy textured, with seamlessly integrated fine tannins and brisk minerality that brings together all the layers in a long succulent finish.

“Lovely, elegant nose - an inviting mix of restrained blackcurrants and cassis with a hint of menthol, leather and newly sawn wood. A dense, weighty palate with good acidity and grippy tannins. Subtle black fruits linger pleasantly. Lovely structure and good freshness. Intriguing all round.”

Fruit was harvested in the cool morning and brought to the winery. The grapes were destemmed, sorted and delivered to large stainless-steel tanks. Wine was fermented on the skins in small lots with 5% barrel fermented. Fermentation was managed by pump overs for maximum extraction of color and flavor. The lots were then individually pressed off and settled before transferring into French oak barrels, where the wine was aged for 20 months.
