Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A delicious, velvety blend with flavours of ripe berry.
Vineyard Notes
Both vineyards are situated on the Black Sage Bench and share east-west orientation and famous sandy soils, providing for maximum sun exposure and great drainage.
Production Notes
1200 cases made
Winemaker Notes
A blend of 40% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 20% Gamay. Grapes were hand harvested and transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over to extract color and flavour. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees, and a light membrane press yields the juice used for the Cactus Red blend.
