This cuvee is dominated by Merlot and complemented by Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot in the final blend. The resulting wine is rich and bold with notes of Morello cherry and hints of clove and cedar. In the mouth, this full-bodied wine delivers blackcurrant and cherry fruit balanced by soft tannins and hints of cigar box and toasty oak.
Storrs Winery takes advantage of the long growing season in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where the cooler climate allows more time for the grapes to mature. This type of coastal terroir typically produces crisp, complex Chardonnays, comparable to those of Burgundy and Chablis. They also produce Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Grenache, and a signature Bordeaux Red, all of which reflect the unique mountain microclimates of the Santa Cruz viticulture area.
