Sometimes, our incredibly small team has to run, and sometimes, we get a more leisurely pace. Mother Nature allowed us to saunter through the 2018 vintage rather than race. A near picture-perfect growing season rolled from March right through to October, with no frost or extreme heat, and just enough of a fall rain to knock the dust off of the grapes before harvest. All of this easy living allowed the fruit almost two months, from veraison to harvest, to develop flavor and complexity. The slow and steady vibe set the stage for a wine of energy, expression and life that only Drew, Jessica and Luc (along with Mother Nature and our vineyard) could create.
Rich, deep and polished, the 2018 is loaded with the special characters of our vineyard. A whole range of black fruit and spices build as this sumptuous Cabernet shows off its nuanced personality. Intriguing aromas of fresh and preserved berries and black currants mingle with softer notes of sweet tobacco and cedar. Velvety texture and a restrained oak framework support the opulent flavors of blackberry, Luxardo cherry, cassis and a hint of smoked meats. It is remarkably full-bodied and explosive yet shows finesse and refinement. Enjoy now and over its decades long evolution.
