100% Heart Hill Vineyard
98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
We knew this particular block of Cabernet Sauvignon represented the best fruit from the vineyard that year and carved out a small piece of the block to chase a long fermentation, with Petit Verdot. Extended maceration of almost four weeks produced a burly wine with amazing density, structure, tannins & acid. We then aged it in barrel for 20 months before bottling it unfiltered.
Complex & intriguing layers are held captive in this wine, and a patient drinker will be heavily rewarded by decanting. As it unfurls in your glass, the stoic nature of our Heart Hill Cabernet Sauvignon begins to soften, unveiling dark chocolate & black cherry notes underscored by an earthen minerality. The palate is indicative of its pedigree, with beguiling dark fruit accented by light cherry blossom and powerful, chalky tannins. 150 cases produced.
