The blueberry and blackberry character and bouquet of violets is off the charts. Full body, the Cabernet Franc dominates the blend now, with so much dark fruits, minerals and flowers with hints of spices. It is a very powerful and linear CB and shows... James Suckling.

56% cabernet franc, 44% merlot. 100% new oak. This big, ripe Cheval displays intense aromas of camphor, cassis, raspberry and leather, framed by notes of earth.

Produced from a higher percentage of Cabernet Franc than usual 56% Cabernet Franc with the remaining 34% percent relegated to Merlot; that assemblage is similar to what is planted in the vineyards today. The wine reached 14.5% alcohol with a 3.75 pH allowing for a rich ripe wine that is also alcoholic and fresh. Placing your nose into this wine reminds you of walking into a flower shop. The aromatics are further complicated with scents of stone oak truffle caramel and black cherry. Pairing delicacy with power this is an elegant deep wine of finesse purity and refinement. Part of the reason for the wines success is the long and exacting time spent harvesting the fruit. The estate took three weeks to conclude picking. Previously they finished the harvest in two weeks.

Winemaker's Notes:

" The blueberry and blackberry character and bouquet of violets is off the charts. full body, the cabernet franc dominates the blend now, with so much dark fruit, minerals and flowers with hints of spices. shows amazing length and purity...99-100" JS 6/11 "Mulberries, black currants, fresh minerals, and floral notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied, dense wine. With its tannins, good acidity and surprisingly modest pH, this should be an exceptionally long-lived wine...96-98" WA 5/11
