The grapes were harvested at peak ripeness, then de-stemmed, crushed and left to cold soak for 2-3 days. The individual components were fermented naturally on the skins in stainless steel tanks until dry, with gentle pumpovers performed regularly. The wine was then pressed and returned to tank for malolactic fermentation and ageing.
From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
(A five variety Bordeaux blend consiting of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 1% of Cabernet Franc, done almost entirely in stainless steel). Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Aromas of dark berries, bitter chocolate and herbs lifted by violet. Then surprisingly brisk and delineated on the palate, with dark fruit, herb and spice flavours displaying excellent energy and firmness. 88 Points
