  • 81% Petit Verdot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Petit Verdot from our finest blocks at Quintessence, Olsen and Ciel du Cheval, with a small amount of
    Cabernet Sauvignon to elevate the blend. The Petit Verdot grapes from Quintessence offer explosive
    blue fruit aromas and a layered, dynamic finish. The grapes from Olsen vineyard add layers of intense
    floral notes and an expansive palate. Ciel du Cheval grapes provide a dense, meaty core of black and
    blue fruits with a long supple finish. The Quintessence Cabernet Sauvignon contributes savory spice
    notes with rich flavors and textures across the palate.
  • The 2021 vintage produced exceptionally low yields,the berries were remarkably small, and clusters
    were extremely light, producing wines with amazing depth and intensity.
  • The fruit was hand harvested in mid-October and was fermented in 1.5, 2 and 5-ton open top
    fermenters for 7-10 days. It was then lightly pressed to barrel, where it finished primary and malolactic
    fermentation and was aged for 21 months in 71% new French oak.
