Our style is a bit more restrained than other Seven Hills Vineyards wine in general. Though Cabenet Franc is only a small portion of the overall blend, the floral character of the grape is evident.
More prominent are the expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot - plum, black cherry, blueberry, tea and cedar.
Our blend is built upon individually fermented and aged lots from the Seven Hills Vineyard. We used about one-third new oak, and only French oak, from a short list of coopers for whom we find an affinity for our style. The wine spent about 18 months in barrel.
