It all started years ago at a chance meeting in the tasting room. This led to the genesis of producing a kick ass wine together. After many meet ups over the years and idea swapping, we decided to do a Cabernet Sauvignon to start…and not just an ordinary one.
We got the components for 2009 together and headed to my cottage to watch the Super Bowl and start up the final blending process. After a quick Guinness to calm the nerves and cleanse the pallet, we dove right into it. Within minutes it was clear that the Super Bowl was an after-thought and the creation of this wine was taken very serious attitude. After hours of creative epiphanies, Mike had his blend. Two weeks later he came in and hand blended one barrel, and I hand blended the other. Truly HANDS-ON, HAND-CRAFTED with a “punk” attitude!!
