Banshee Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML
Banshee with the also cool 2010 vintage freshly in our minds, we worked closely with our growers and dropped more fruit in late August once we saw how behind things were. This allowed the remaining bunches to ripen a small (but important) bit faster. Secondly, we did a massive culling of our various lots after harvest, selling off nearly half of our production on the bulk market, leaving us with only the very best barrels from the best blocks. And lastly we spent a lot of time blending and leaned more on other Bordeaux varietals than in past vintages. We had an absolutely killer lot of Petite Verdot and a very charming piece of Merlot that played big parts here.
