Terlato Devils' Peak
The “Peak Series” of wines of Napa Valley Bordeaux blends were born to honor three grand crus of Bordeaux and the families that own those chateaux. Devils’ Peak is the second blend in the Terlato Family Vineyards Peak series, following the traditions and methods of the St. Émilion region, which is dominated by Cabernet Franc, some Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Variety: 71% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Blueberry and floral notes with hints of jasmine tea. Firm with a mix of spice, fresh-turned earth, dried berry and sage. Maintains focus and fine balance, ending with crushed rock and tobacco. Should gain with time.
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 our underground wine caves for 22 months.
