Our goal in blending two noble varieties together is to acquire the best attributes of each variety and marry them in a complementary and seamless way. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah intermingle with a unique complexity.
Our minimalist approach, using indigenous yeast during fermentation and not filtering or fining, adds to the purity of fruit from some of the best vineyards - Klipsun, Ceil du Cheval, Stone Tree, Sagemoor, Bacchus, Weinbau. Aged on the lees for 8 months and oak matured for 20 months.
This vintage of our house favorite has a Cabernet dominant nose of grilled herbs, crushed stones, cassis and black cherry followed by savory cured meats and olive contributed by the Syrah. Add some toasted vanilla from 50% new French oak and you’ve got a seriously impressive and complete Final Final. The palate is structured, age-worthy and powerful, but not overstated. Open, aerate, and enjoy as it softens and deepens aromatically. The last glass will have you reaching for another bottle!
