The Blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot.  The fruit from each Wetzel Estate Vineyard was vinified and treated differently.  The Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes for this blend were picked at the peak of ripeness and have excellent natural acidity.  The use of selected Bordeaux yeast strains, high fermentation temperatures and frequent (twice daily) pump-overs made highly extracted wines with intense Bordeaux aromas and flavors yet soft well integrated tannins.
