Terlato Vineyards Devil's Peak 2006
The "Peak Series" are Napa Valley Bordeaux-blends developed "in homage" to the grand crus of Bordeaux. Devils' Peak is the second in a trinity of wines. This blend follows the traditions and methods of St. milion; its predominant grape varietal is Cabernet Franc. We strive to use Old World methods to produce a wine with drinkability, complexity and age-worthiness.
Inspired by Cheval Blanc, this wine is predominantly Cabernet Franc. Its more reticent at first than its sister wines (Angels and Cardinals peak), but this wine has a lot of structure and is probably the best match with food. Cassis, cranberries and lilacs predominate - a clear Cab Franc nose. Very mineral with elegance and finesse. Finishes on leather with warm vanilla notes
