This is our debut vintage of Excelsior. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The first whiff off the nose offers graphite and herbal notes of tarragon. As the wine opens sweet aromatics of vanilla, figs, black currents and chocolate covered cherries reveal themselves. In the mouth sweet lingering tannins mingle with mouthwatering acidity. Drink now or through 2022.

Wine EnthusiastSlightly more than half the wine was aged in new French oak, and the liquorous barrel notes are prominent in the nose. Once in the mouth the fruit takes hold-berries and cherries, accented with fresh herbs, cilantro, and clean earth.
