Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Full bodied, intense flavors of black cherry, blackberries, plum, sweet cedar and anise up front, elegant and silky tannins carry the mid palate to the persistent finish. A full sensory experience of how elegant but complex and flavourful valley floor Cabernet can be.
Vineyard Notes
Purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1988, the vineyard was replanted using new Cabernet Sauvignon clones with tighter spacing and more technical trellising, giving way for higher quality, more control and more grape tonnage to pull. This is Beckstoffer Vineyards home base of operations.
Production Notes
Aged in new american oak barrels for 24 months Gently pressed and fermented at low temperatures for a deeper concentration of flavour and colour. No more than 1 atmosphere of pressure during pressing, free run juice only. Small production.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic meat dishes: Venison, lamb, pork chops, beef, stews. This wine is meant to compliment hearty and savory dishes rather than compete.
Other Notes
Drinks beautifully now Decant for 1-3 hours Cellar for 5-13 years
