Expressive, complex aromas of black currant, cassis, dried lavender and cocoa powder. Explosive blue and black fruits immediately entice the palate with a slow building, persistent, fine-grain tannin profile throughout. Ripe black cherry, baking spices, culinary herbs, slow cooked brisket, cocoa on a dusted bonbon. Incredibly integrated, concentrated and powerful, this Cabernet will age well for decades but is incredibly exciting and drinkable upon release.
III Michaels Esatate, now known as Rancho Pequeno, is located on the Eastern Bench of Oakville. We love the site because it has great exposure but also cool, heavy soils that help the vines retain natural acidity all the while letting the fruit fully ripen deep, dark, intense flavors.
