2014 THE DUCK'S NUTS
The 2014 vintaged produced exceptional wines with distinctive varietal characters. We selected the 3 best French barrels from the entire vintage and made a single release blend. These oak barrels are called T5 and take over 5 years to dry out before being crafted into barrels. This being one (of several) process involved to create a very high quality oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec of equal proportions have created a wine with an abundance of complexity, varietal expression and age worthiness. We hope you enjoy this extremely small volume and rare release that we are very proud of. Strongly recommended to cellar to experience it's full potential.
