Assemblage: A classic right bank Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc
Elevage: Aged for 24 months in 50% new and 50% neutral French oak barrels from selected cooperages.
Harvest Notes: 2010 was marked by an unusually cool summer and delayed ripening. However, consistently warm weather from late September through late October, produced phenolic ripeness and flavor development with extraordinary natural acidity. The overall result was balanced, elegant wines with lower alcohol and higher acidity than in typical years.
