“The warm 2011 growing season provided ideal conditions to craft a rich, complex Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. Currently sitting in a superb drinking window, with juicy fruit notes still in prime position and just a hint of what’s to come as the wine softens into earthy, chocolatey maturity.” 
STEVE JAMES, HEAD OF VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING

VINTAGE

Vineyard Notes
A mild, dry winter was followed by a warm early spring, advancing vine growth and flowering. November was unusually warm and the prelude to a warm, humid summer with grapes passing through veraison quickly. Cabernet and Merlot enjoyed perfect autumn conditions and were harvested during late March and early April with great concentration and excellent tannin profiles.
