Sticking with our belief that wine, like life, should be bold, daring and irresistibly interesting, we crafted our Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s hauntingly seductive nose surrounds the senses with boysenberry, cassis and black cherry, embraced by rich mocha and hints of black pepper. The intensity continues across the smooth, well-structured palate, with an abundance of fruit and spice that extends into a lingering and enjoyable finish. We recommend you pair the wine with dishes equally interesting and flavorful, such as pasta puttanesca or spice-rubbed steak. A winemaker in France is referred to simply as vigneron, translated as “vine grower.” This humble title reflects the traditional belief that wine is made on the vine rather than in the winery. Our job as winemakers is merely to ensure that the character of the fruit raised in the vineyard is captured in the glass. To do this, we used classic winemaking techniques. To give a hint of oak spices and structure, 30 percent of the wine was barrel fermented and aged for five months.
