2017 Ember (Library)
Limited Re-Release from our Libray Collection—this classic blend of four Bordeaux varietals—Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot—was chosen to express that the 2017 vintage had to offer. Medium bodied with a nice fruitiness on the palate giving way to smooth tannins on the finish.
North Fork of Long Island
Open Top Tanks
Blueberry, raspberry, brambly wild berry flavors flow onto the palate. Medium bodied with a soft plump mid-palate, Ember has nice, smooth tannins on the finish.
The four different varietals were each fermented in open top tanks and punched down during their time on skins. The goal is to extract color and tannin without remaining too long (14 – 18 days) on skins before pressing to retain the vibrant fruit notes. Ember is then aged for 12 months in Hungarian oak.
