Winemaker Notes:

Our grapes are handpicked, sorted and cold-soaked immediately after picking. Following fermentation, this wine was aged for 21 months in French oak, 70% new. This wine offers dark, concentrated depth and character. Given a few minutes or hours after opening a bottle, the aromatics will continue to evolve and improve.

97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep purple-black in color with a reduced nose of tar, meat and earth with blackberries, plums, pencil lead and herbs nuances. Medium to full-bodied and rich in the mouth, it finishes a bit hard and herbal.
