The cabernet sauvignon, primarily from the original 24-year-old vines, provides bold, structured tannins which benefits from the blending of the three other Bordeaux varietals. A warm 2012 season led to a late September to early October harvest. The extended hang time was necessary to achieve “physiological ripeness”, a condition where grape sugars, skin pigments and seed tannins are in balance. The wines were fermented and aged separately for nearly two years in mostly new French oak barrels. The finished blend delivers powerful chewy textures, the succulence of red berries and a vanilla-cream like finish.
