55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Carménère

"Ripe and rich-tasting, with flavors of dark plum, cherry tart and dried blackberry, backed by firm acidity and fresh tannins. Shiso leaf and dried basil notes emerge on the minerally finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported. -KM" (WS)

"This is crazy with mushrooms, black truffle, blackberries and hot stone. Old-vine magic. Full body, dense and so polished with integrated and melted tannins. Greatness and respect. A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon and 45% carmenere. Made from organically grown grapes. 120-year-old cabernet and 70-year-old carmenere. Amazing. Drink or hold." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Grapes are harvested at first light, and the fruit carefully double sorted and destemmed. The fruit is then gravity fed into 5000 L tanks, where they are fermented with native yeasts. The wine is then racked off to 225 L French oak barrels, where the wine is aged for 14 months. After this period, the wine is finished in 3000 L foudres for 6 months in order to achieve a perfect integration.
