Winemaker Chris Peterson declassified seven barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc that did not go into his top-drawer Sestina blend – meaning they didn’t fit what he was seeking. Yet the result is in no way a step down, except in price. This is a stunning red that uses grapes from Bacchus, Red Willow and Klipsun vineyards. It opens with aromas of plum, sage, oak, smoked almond and black cherry, followed by a bold entry of ripe dark fruit, dark chocolate and espresso. Drink now or sometime in the next decade.
