2013 Powers Reserve Champoux Vineyard Red Blend

Tasting Notes

Dark layered aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, eucalyptus, and a slight touch of dusty notes influenced by warm soil and pleasant minerality.  On the palate, flavors of dark complex red fruit, red currant, spice, and a subtle touch of minerality that delivers refined elegance on this powerful wine.  With firm fine dusty tannins and balanced acidity, this wine has a great finish that you would come to expect from this World Class Vineyard site.

Winemaker Notes

With this being the 5th release of our Red Blend from Champoux Vineyard, this wine is a tribute to our long partnership with Paul Champoux and this unbelievable vineyard site.  The components of this blend were fermented with a pump-under technique using a variety of 796 and PDM yeasts with 100% malolactic fermentation completed in French Oak.  We then aged the wine for 40 months in 65% new French Oak barrels.
