A very small amount of the 2018 Faultline was made from specific blocks from our Eakle Ranch vineyards. The 2018 Faultline is a delicious blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Malbec, and 15% Merlot. Fire up the grill for this wine!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is a substantial wine with aromas of graphite, currant, and pumpkin spice leading to opulent dark fruit and savory balsam flavors, finishing with desert herbs and fine, firm tannins. The Faultline is a versatile wine that will pair wonderfully with an assortment of foods including aged Gouda, Bresaola, a savory mushroom tart, grilled ribeye, and braised lamb shank.  Just a few dishes to start!
Production Notes
Berries were 100% destemmed to tank and fermented over the course of 15 days. Upon pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels, of which 40% were new, where it rested for 24 months prior to bottling.
