Cultivar: 46 % Merlot / 23 % Petit Verdot / 19 % Cabernet Franc / 12% Cabernet Sauvignon

A Symphony of Cultivars:

Drawing inspiration from our successful vintages of single cultivar Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, we've come full circle to craft The Right Bank. This exceptional blend marries Merlot as the mistress and backbone, with Cabernet Sauvignon lending structure, Petit Verdot adding fruitiness, and Cabernet Franc infusing soul. The result is a harmonious composition that promises a once-in-a-lifetime tasting experience.

Crafted with Precision:

Our grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness and meticulously hand-sorted in our Flagship cellar to ensure only the finest fruit is selected for fermentation. Following two days of cold maceration, the juice is inoculated with a selected yeast strain. After fermentation, the wine undergoes hand-pressing with a small 1-ton basket press before being transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation, imparting depth and complexity.

Elevated Maturation:

Matured for 24 months in French oak barrels, of which 55% are first-fill, The Right Bank undergoes a transformative journey, evolving and refining its character with each passing day.

Limited Production, Maximum Quality:

With a total production of just 2,600 bottles, each one represents the culmination of our dedication to excellence and commitment to craftsmanship.

Winemaker's Reflections:

It took us more than a year to perfect this blend, and the effort shines through in every sip. Fragrant and intense sweet fruit aromas entice the senses, while fine, mouth-coating tannins contribute to a long, sophisticated finish that lingers on the palate.

Age-Worthy Excellence:

While delightful to drink now, The Right Bank possesses the elegance and fruit intensity to age gracefully, reaching its peak potential by 2028. With its great body and structure, it promises to evolve beautifully with cellaring.
