Description Technical Notes PDF Fact Sheet
Classic, rich and complex Merlot/CabFranc blend from a celebrated, bountiful vintage. After two years of challenging weather conditions, mother nature gave us a break. Aromas of bitters, stone fruits and berries dark and alluring, leading to a smooth, dense palate and long, mouthwatering finish. This natural, hand-made wine is unfiltered for optimal depth and character. NOTE: Expect sediment!!

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: our 2012 BOURRIQUOT got the rest... and it's delicious.)

Latest tasting notes: Are we in peak drinking window? Tannins are fully resolved in the Atlas Peak Cabernet Franc that was viciously scratching cheeks early on. This is now a very smooth wine, pop and pour! It's unfiltered so please stand bottle upright to open. If tartrates/sediment are present in the neck, you can quickly wipe them out, or pour the first splash with a little screen. The beauty of an unfiltered wine is totally worth the extra moment of effort!
