62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Petit Verdot
For a winemaker who has focused over 20 years of winemaking on Syrah, Grenache and Zinfandel, The Martian is an opportunity to play with a different set of ingredients; Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. The resulting wine is perfectly balanced between rich dark red fruits, creme brûlée and cigar box. On the palate firm but rounded tannins interplay with uplifting acidity for a smooth lush mouthfeel. The finish is seemingly endless, black currants steamed in french oak. Drink now through 2038, recommended one hour decant if drunk before 2026.
“Unexpected and unfamiliar, sometimes the stranger becomes your ally.”
