Winemaker Notes

Every vintage, I have the privilege to witness the vines’ grape cycle and decide when to harvest them. We sort the Cabernet grapes by hand, we gently crush them and naturally ferment them into wine. The young wine is then put into oak barrels to enrich the taste and character of the wine.  The optimum time spent in oak before we bottle it is wildly subjective and ultimately a personal choice. *With V1- V2- V3, you have the opportunity to be your own cellar master and experience the aging development of this batch from the comfort of your home. 

 

V1: 12months oak aging (80% French, 20% American)

2018 was one of the best vintages of all time. The fruit character on the nose of V1 is bright, youthful, concentrated and of complex. On the palate, the tenacity of the flavors indicate that the wine is ready to drink.  Decanting it is highly recommended if you are like too impatient to cellar it like Keith(dad). Currently the palette boasts layers of dark cherries, cola, spice and cacao but expect other flavors to emerge with time, tobacco, leather, dark chocolate and mocha to name a few.
