Winemaker Christophe Paubert practiced simple methods to highlight each variety’s unique characteristics in this blend. The grapes for this wine underwent a two-week maceration period designed to pull flavor, color and tannin from the skins. The majority of the blend is Petit Verdot, which provides the backbone of this wine, contributing a deep, intense color, floral notes, plush tannins and saturating dark fruit flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds a softness, creating a wine of tremendous complexity, depth and concentration.
Varietal Composition: 75% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
