2014 Hypothesis 'En Primeur'
Golden Mile Bench
An estate grown blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (22%) from Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (30%), 1-year-old (63%), and 2-year-old (7%) French oak barrels.
Black pepper and Provençal Saucisson aromas are buoyed by intense dark cherries and currant notes. Structured and dense, the balanced and full palate showcases integrated fruit, chocolate, cloves and a subtle trace of mint. Tannins are fine and supple; the finish long and pronounced.
Traditional Raclette with herbed, new baby potatoes, grilled elk sausage, cornichons, and whole-grain mustard.
