As it is used in Bordeaux, this wine was originally intended as a blending component. However, as the wine developed in the cellar in became clear to Peter that he'd have to bottle some as a single varietal. As a result there were only very limited quantities of this wine produced (50 cases).
The wine is aged for 17 months in Franech Oak, 60% new.
A seductive medium ruby color draws you in. Classic cedar, earth, truffle, and floral notes with an interesting tension between the toasty oak and fruit. Flavors reflect the nose. Lively with good acidity in a warm but firm structure. A long finish with more cedar expressions.
