WineDiva's Review

Mature, woven, savoury.
All five varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec) were harvested by hand from Burrowing Owl's estate vineyards. The best barrels of each single varietal wine were selected for the blend. After the components were combined, they were barreled for another three and a half months and then bottled and left to mature further in a temperature-controlled environment before release.
Notes of muddled blackberry, cherry and cassis are layered with vanilla, licorice, pipe tobacco, sage, brown spice and cedar chest. The palate highlights the same muddled red and black fruit as the nose suggests, along with charred tobacco, leather and smoked paprika. Fresh and nicely woven with some mid-palate chew thanks to the tannins. Shows maturity.
