A brand new Pott wine, a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from the Garcia Family’s Remedium vineyard. This is a vineyard project on Howell Mountain that Aaron has been involved with from the very start.
The vineyard sits at about 1500 feet on an escarpment of the prized Aiken Clay and Loam overlooking the valley to the South West. The ideal soil and perfect exposure allow the grapes to develop their deep, rich flavors which we then stack up, layer by layer in the blend. The site is also a stone’s throw from the Valley’s famous Linda Falls waterfall, whose slabs of blocky basalt were the inspiration for- and form the bedrock of – this wine.
He planted two thirds of it to Cabernet Sauvignon See clone and the last third – right at the edge of the escarpment – on his favorite Cabernet Franc clone Vieux Chateau Certan.
The aromatics of Cabernet Franc pop out of the glass here Blueberry, cedar, tobacco, plum, raspberry and toasted walnuts. The palate shows the layers of Cabernet Sauvignon with Black currants, blackberry, tobacco, menthol and dark chocolate. The finish has wonderful length and goes on and on, showcasing cigar box, plum, blackberries, cherry and blueberries.
