Made only one barrel of this wine containing mostly Cabernet Sauvignon then Merlot then Cabernet Franc and with small addition of Petit Verdot. Aged 36 months in a new French oak barrel and bottled it recently into a few cases of 750ml bottles and the rest into magnum bottles. It won’t last long but it was a fun experiment that helped us discover the holy grail for time in the barrel.
