Our 2015 Elevage is reflective of the year it was born. A drought year stressed our vines and gifted us with tiny berries and beautiful concentration. The result is a wine of depth and balance, power and grace. This symphonic blend of four grapes assures us that there is indeed strength in numbers. Color: Deep red with a purple hue. Aroma: Rich fruit aromas of huckleberry, Bing cherry and black currant. Undertones of mint, mocha and vanilla and violets are enticing in this rich blend. Taste: The front palate of this wine is rich and deeply textured. The mid palate is round and the tannins firmly structure with a long, balanced finish.

A blend of 77% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Elevage reveals a deep garnet-purple color with an earthy/spicy nose along with dried herbs and notions of stewed plums and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and soft-spoken fruit, it finishes earthy.

This is a blend of 77% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot from the producer's estate in the heart of the appellation. It is driven by a velvety texture, with plush wrap-around tannins running the show. Oak, sage and cedar define the flavors alongside layers of plum and red currant.
