The heritage of estate fruit (34%), Champoux Vineyard (33%) and Ciel du Cheval (33%) — the latter a first for the Gamache brothers — was molded by 83% new French oak into a presentation of balanced barrel influences, gobs of black fruit and good grip in the finish. The nose also carries hints of cedar and cranberry, while the palate brings in plums and pomegranate. There’s a long life ahead for this, but enjoy it now with rich meats.
