2016 Aldie Heights Cuvée

40% Tannat, 37% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvginon

Notes from the Winemaker: The 2016 Aldie Heights Cuvée leans heavily on Tannat, a varietal that has both high acid and high tannin.  Cabernet Franc offers a great mid-palate texture to compliment the Tannat.  The Cabernet Sauvignon brings freshness as a lighter-bodied foil to the Tannat, which can be quite heavy due to the tannic structure.  It is all about balance for our flagship wine! I used a little more new French Oak on this vintage- 11% new, 20% second fill, 6% third fill and 63% neutral for 18 months.

My favorite 50 West wine! Elegant, smooth, and perfectly balanced.

EVERY SINGLE VINTAGE OF THIS WINE IS AMAZING! I thought 2013 was my favorite, and then 2016 was released. Dark fruit flavors, silky tannins, balanced oak characters and begs for red meat! It's hard to pick a favorite wine at 50 West, but this wine just might be it.
