    A real old school dry red gem with mid-palate silk elicited from the fruit’s cold soak, producing a wine with juicy dark berries and a touch of quinine.

    Production: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot. Destemmed without crushing to increase proportion of whole berries in the ferment, supplemented by 20% whole bunch.
