Aging PotentialOne for the cellar!
Using techniques learned over time, Nick Goldschmidt selected four barrels of wine from the 2010 vintage that he felt were exceptional. From a thin slice of an already exceptional vineyard, drained over a period of two days and aged twice in new barrels, the final result is a wine that exceeds the quality of the vintage. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new Taransaud Medium-Plus Allier for 24 months, then gravity racked into a second, new Taransaud barrel for an additional 19 months. The wine was then hand bottled directly from the barrels, unfined and unfiltered. Only 194 six-packs of this wine were produced.
Aging: 43 months in 100% new Allier Oak Tight-Grain
