James Cab/Merlot

$30.00 / bottle

Our Merlot block always seems to come through with the goods. The Cabernet was good this year as well and blended the two to make a classic red made sence. The machine pick grapes were destemmed and crushed then fermented in open vats before been racked to barrel for Malicactic fermentation, the pressings going to our press for gentle extraction. The wines were aged in new and old French oak for 18 months before blending. Traditional egg white fining was used prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

The aroma of this wine is dominated by fresh clean dark berry fruit, supported by subtle oak bouquet. On the palate you get blackcurrant, cabernet fruit and lingering tannins. Drink Now, and until 2028.
