The 2014 growing season was an exceptional one in Sonoma, providing a perfect ripening for Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with a longer ripening of Cabernet Sauvignon yielding fruit expressions with elegant and spicy tannins.
A classic Bordeaux blend driven by Merlot, this complex wine offers notes of black fruit, violet, savory spice and cocoa powder. The finish displays exceptional balance and length. Composition: 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec
The Tepusquet vineyard is part of the Jackson familys holdings in the Santa Maria Valley, in the Santa Barbera district. This is very impressive and dedicated wine-making, hand harvested and elevated with 28% new oak, resulting is a compote of black fruits and spice tinged mocha. Great with baby back ribs.
