Overview

To blend or not to blend, that is often a winemaker’s question. Elevage, our proprietary blend, explores the idea that multiple personalities can indeed coexist harmoniously in the world of wine. Take the austerity of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, blend it with the roundness of Merlot, add the aromatic highlights of Petit Verdot, the savory notes or Cabernet Franc and voila, a complex symphony is written. The 2018 vintage brought the return of cool weather which in turn brought a freshness and a layered depth to the wines that is delightful. The finesse, grace and complexity of the aromatics of this cool vintage will be one to remember.
