Tasting Notes :Lupicaia, which means place of the wolf hunts, is a vineyard of 12.5 acres planted 90 percent to Cabernet Sauvignon vines and ten percent to Merlot vines planted in 1989. This is the estates finest microclimate and yields its best grapes. Exposure is on south-southwest-facing slopes in soils consisting of stones and sand which are sheltered by eucalyptus trees. The Terriccio estates position also enjoys this microclimates proximity to the coast which subjects it to maritime influences which create a long, warm growing season of great luminosity. The grapes are hand-harvested and hand-selected between mid-September and early October, with pickers making two consecutive passes through the vineyards to permit the fullest and most perfect ripening of the clusters .Tasting Notes: This wine's dense, highly extracted cassis and black cherry flavors and aromas are punctuated by distinct notes of cedar, smoke and forest, set in a ripe, firmly focused tannic structure ending in an elegant, sustained finish.
