They dried these grapes using a combination fan dry and kiln dry ranging from 40 to 55 days, then co-fermented all 4 varieties together in a large rectangular concrete tank for 2 months. There is a combination of fresh and stewed red fruit with an herbal and peppered undertone on the nose. The palate is quite dry, and the tannins grab hold, and the fresh red berry fruit is also layered with umami and a touch of salinity I assume from the Petit Verdot. This is a monster wine that needs decanting and leaving the decanter somewhere cool.
