Overture reflects the winemaker's artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. However, Overture's third blending aspect - that of marrying multiple vintages- yields a softer, rounder expression of our estate that can be enjoyed upon release. The classic blackberry and cassis character of Cabernet Sauvignon melds seamlessly with the black cherry, red currant, and violet from the Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. The blending of wine lots across vintages and extended barrel aging give Overture a supple structure and silky texture.

"A timeless expression of our estate vineyards, Overture is full-bodied but approachable in its youth. Overture shows generous dark fruit aromas and flavors with a soft, supple mid-palate."–Winery Notes

  • d93

The first time specific blocks have been used for this wine. Dark forest berry notes on the nose with perfumed elements and notes of milk chocolate. Supple and agile, generous with textured, slightly grainy tannins that are so pleasant - expansive and round in the mouth. It's well built and very approachable with blackcurrant and black cherry flavours on the palate. Concentrated, deep, and layered but still with elegance. Extremely characterful. A blend of the 2018 and 2019 vintages with 18 months aging in French oak barrels. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend.
