From the winemaker:
Mr. Glavine’s blend was our chance to create the best blend possible from the 2006 vintage. It allows us to use many small select lots made from specific sites farmed by the Hill Family that fall outside of the flagship Beauterre Vineyard. Blending this wine is always a challenge, as expectations are high, and the lots themselves have strong voices that do not always want to balance the way one would expect. The final blend shimmers and forms complex layers that will grow and improve for years to come.
The nose takes off with really pretty blackberry and violets, some toasty oak; full, rich, and fruity with jammy berry and black licorice undertones and chewy tannin, but tasty and drinkable (palate softens and lengthens as it sits out in the glass).
Composition: 57% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cooperage: 16 months in 85%French oak barrels, 10% American Oak, and 5% Hungarian Oak
