I am very proud of the 2015 Pied à Terre Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was aged exclusively in French wood, though less than 20 percent of the barrels were new. We use an assortment of coopers, in search of the barrels with the least impact on flavor: Cavin, Orion, Boutes, Nadalie, Artisan, Rousseau, Sylvain and Radoux. In 2015, the wood integrated seamlessly. One of my favorite winemakers, Dominique Belluard, talks about the importance of a wine having energy. This wine has energy!
Tasting Notes: Aromas of sour cherry, violets and pencil shavings with supple texture and great length. Despite the richness and intensity of the vintage, the wine is still elegant and fresh, with mature tannins. A perfect complement to hearty meat dishes.
