70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
The 2017 Mother of Exiles offers a profound nose filled with red currant, tar, blackberry, and an exotic intermingling of chipotle, cumin seed and cardamom. The palate has generous flavors of dark chocolate, Bing cherry, anise and a hint of menthol that brings a level of freshness as it heads towards a thrilling finish. The midpalate is luxurious, with a silky entry and subtle, yet grippy tannins on the long, drawn-out finish.

Once-daily delestages with ice during five-day cold soak, then feral fermented with once-daily pump-overs. Fermented 100% de-stemmed
