Description Technical Notes PDF Fact Sheet
A classic Merlot/CabFranc blend from a special vintage. After two years of making us work, mother nature gave us a break. Aromas of bitters, baking spice, all things dark and alluring, leading you to a rich smooth palate and very long finish. This natural, hand-made wine is unfiltered for optimal depth and character.

14.4% alcohol. Blended early in 2014, aged 26 months in French oak. Only 322 cases bottled, less than half the wine available for blending. (Hint: BOURRIQUOT got the rest...)

2022 update: Tannins fully resolved, this is now a very smooth wine, pop (carefully) and pour! It's unfiltered so please stand bottle upright to open. Preferably, stand upright a few hours to days before opening. Pull cork, slowly, straight up. If tartrates/sediment is present in the neck, you can quickly wipe it out, or you may want to use a pourer with a little screen (or pour through a wine strainer just the first splash). The full beauty of a well-aged wine is totally worth a moment of effort!
