Cherries and plum on the nose. Soft, fruit-forward flavours of berry mingle with a hint of milk chocolate.
For the 2018 growing season spring started slowly and was wetter than average. Once the warmer weather arrived mid-spring, it caused the above average snow levels in the mountains to melt rapidly resulting in another year of flooding. Once summer arrived, it was hot and dry which tested our vineyard crews to pay close attention to irrigation regimes and leaf-to-fruit ratios. The vineyards soaked up the summer sunshine. A beautiful autumn saw the perfect weather to allow the fruit to catch up after a wet September.
39% Merlot, 24% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvginon, 6% Petit Verdot
Red Eyed Monster was made from a blend of red grapes. The berries were hand picked & sorted in the vineyard. Each of the component varietals were fermented separately. The finished wines were then blended to taste by Stefan and Dan our favourite winemakers.
