Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Some of the finest grapes on the Black Sage Bench. A robust wine, with an intense, dark berry flavour. Jammy, spicy mid palate with a long vanilla and black chocolate finish. Excellent aging potential.
Vineyard Notes
Eagle's Nest is our Estate Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, where the east-west orientation and famous sandy soil provide for maximum sun exposure and great drainage. Our Bordeaux Grapes are planted 8 by 3 feet, where we harvest less grapes per vine, but of superior quality. Taking 2.1 tons per acre.
Production Notes
245 Cases made
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by the stemmed whole berries and being transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve with prime rib, tenderloin or filet, Lamb and strong cheese.

Excellent on its own but incredible with prime rib. Very smooth and not overly strong berry flavoured.
