Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot 34% / Petit Verdot 20% / Malbec 11%
Vineyards: Grapes are selected from various plots in soils of decomposed granite and sandy loam at about 918-1,058 feet of altitude.
The vines, of an average age of 14 years, are planted at a density of 1,700 to 2,023 per acre and trained in the traditional Cordon method.
Vinification and Aging: Grapes are destemmed and soft-crushed and the must fermented in stainless steel tanks at 77-86° F for two weeks on the skins with frequent pumping over the cap.
After malolactic fermentation, the wine of 13.5% alcohol is matured for 18 months in older French oak barrels.
Bottled with a light filtering and matured for 2 months before release.
Style and maturity: The Rouge shows a deep ruby colour with garnet highlights on the rim.
The generous bouquet suggests black- currant, cedar with scents reminiscent of red berries, spices and vanilla.
The wine is amply structured; full, round and smooth on the palate with rich fruit and length of flavour. An elegant wine that can mature with time in the bottle.
