Terlato Cardinals' Peak
Cardinals' Peak is the third blend in the Terlato Family’ Vineyards Peak series, following the traditions and methods of Bordeaux. This Peak is inspired by the Margaux region with a principally Cabernet Sauvignon blend. This wine is full-bodied, rich, has intense and delicious flavors, and has the most structure and deepest color of all the Peak wines.
Tasting Notes: Blackcurrant, black cherry, and cedar with jammy hints on the nose. Complex, with a mix of spice, loamy earth, dried herb and berry accompanied by a touch of sage and chicory, and ending with a drying aftertaste.
Fermentation & Aging: Each vineyard block is vinified separately. Like the traditional method in Bordeaux, the wines are assessed in January with final blending done in March. Aged in French oak barrels, 50% new, in underground wine caves for 22 months.
