WINEMAKER’S NOTES:

The 2016 Cuvée X is a blend made to capture some of the more rustic/earthy elements of this extraordinary vintage.  To achieve this, barrels were selected roughly halfway through our more standard 15 months of barrel aging and brought to tank early where we could more readily preserve their natural fruit character.  Additionally, second-year oak barrels were preferentially selected to achieve pleasant oak nuances while not overpowering the blend.  The resulting wine is thus modestly oaked with an earthy, fruit focus.  The wine opens with blackberry, raspberry and cherry notes with layers of dark chocolate, coffee bean, earth, and black pepper.  Texturally, the wine is rich and round with lively acidity making it a versatile food wine.
