Provenance P-Wave 2011

Member Review by Fred Swan:

Another good value from 2011, this wine offers black cherry, moist cereal grain, dark spice and brown sugar on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied with both prominent acidity and firm tannins of fine grain and chalk. A couple of years in the cellar will soften the tannins and release additional depth. 90pts

"The steadily cool 2011 growing season resulted in long hangtime for the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes as they lingered on the vines into late October and early November before reaching maturity," says Winemaker Chris Cooney. "The slow ripening preserved complexity, while the cumulative sun exposure developed rich, ripe flavors in the small crop. I call our 2011 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon classically Bordeaux-style in character, with elegant boysenberry, cassis and plum expression layered with hints of sage, minerals and black olive." Texturally opulent Rutherford Dust tannins and vibrant acidity structure the red-fruit flavors, while new French oak barrels add integrated toffee, espresso and clove nuances. - Winery Varietal Composition: 93% Cabernet Sauvigonon 3% Cabernet Franc 3% Malbec 1% Petit Verdot Barrel Aging: 19 months French, Hungarian and American oak, 30% new barrels of predominantly French oak Alcohol: 14.2% Acidity: 6.2 g/L pH: 3.74

"The p-wave is the primary wave in an earthquake. We named this wine PWAVE because it shakes up the traditional blend of Bordeaux-heritage grape varietals," says Winemaker Chris Cooney. "We've added non-traditional varietals to a solid core of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, bringing lively, bright red-plum and raspberry to the rich, black cherry and blackberry profile. A nice dose of new oak barrels adds spice, while the cool 2011 vintage gives complex herbal nuances. The tannin structure is firm, yet extremely supple, giving the wine notable elegance." - Winery Varietal Composition: 42% Merlot 33% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Syrah 9% Petite Sirah 3% Tempranillo 2% Touriga 2% Cabernet Franc Barrel Aging: 16 months, 35% new oak barrels Alcohol: 13.9% Acidity: 6.0 g/L pH: 3.64
