2004 Mankas Hills Vineyards Amelie Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot

The current focus of Mankas Hills efforts is to produce world class Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are situated on prime gravelly loam land with ideal slope and drainage to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. Particular attention was paid to lay down the vine trellis to optimize drainage and light exposure.

    Winemaker notes- 2004 marks the inaugural release of Amelie. Aromas of vanilla and oak, along with blackberry and mocha will greet you upon opening a bottle of this rare gem. Blackberry continues in the mouth along with cassis, ripe plums, and a brambly fruit character. As the wine opens up it reveals hints of black cherry which intensify over time (one of the true signatures of the Mankas Hills Vineyard). The addition of Merlot to this wine adds a nice full mouth texture and softens the impact of tannins into a gracefully long finish.
