Tasting Notes: Aromas of ripe blood plums and cherry intertwine with subtle, well-integrated notes of oak. This medium-bodied wine is soft and subtle on the palate with flavors of plums and cherries at the forefront, leading to a lifted, aromatic finish that displays a distinct freshness.
Galaxy Notes: 92% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the tanks. A cold soak extracted color and flavor before primary fermentation. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. Manual harvest. Aged 16 months in French oak.
