A bold and brash wine, explosive and concentrated, reminiscent of the California revolution! This unconventional blend, all from the South Rock Vineyard, home of the winery, co-fermented and aged in French and American oak for 18 months with over 60% new barrels. This “Big Boy” has everything a big red wine drinker wants…and much more. Each varietal brings a very specific element staring with the smoothness and concentration of the Merlot and its cassis flavours. The Zinfandel spread its influence between the front and the mid-palate with ripe jammy red fruits, BBQ sauce and multi-spices, while the Cabernet Sauvignon brings dark fruits, structure and back-bone, but also a spark of minty freshness, which keeps a lively buzz throughout your experience. The oak is melting into the structure nicely but still present and effective, while the tannins are full-go and totally matching the profile of the wine. This wine will age a decade easily! At this point, an hour of decanting is recommended.
