Vineyard Region: Osoyoos
Grape Variety: Cab Franc 47%, Merlot 38%, Cab Sauv 15%
Pick Date: Second Week of October
Winemaker Notes: Mostly Cab Franc from Mama D, some Merlot from Mo, and Sauv from Gordie. Put em through super hot and fast, except right at the end, then I let em sit and stew on skins for what some would say was way too long. After that I barreled them down for ml and checked in on them a few times a year. French Oak, American Oak, Old Oak, you name it.
