The purest expression of our vineyards, Caiarossa shows all the complexity and the nobility of our land. The seven varieties in the blend weave together a perfect tapestry of the estate's terroir. A true expression of the luxury of nature.

The 2016 Caiarossa will be released in September. This wine is a blend of seven grapes-42% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 15.5% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4.5% Sangiovese and 1% Alicante. This vintage sees a slightly higher percentage of Cabernet Franc than usual, but I am told that the 2018 edition will see more Syrah instead. The bouquet presents a beautiful first wave of dark fruit that pushes the limits of ripeness but remains safely within the realm of elegance. The aromas are balanced and focused with blackberry, cassis, and light touches of salty or rusty mineral. The wine is not too constructed or big in the mouth, rather is shows a delicate level of elegances that absolutely seals the deal. Some 57,000 bottles were made.

Dark and brooding, this red delivers blackberry, cassis, violet, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors, set on a dense frame. Youthful and fresh, with a firm structure and a long, saturated finish of dark fruit. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2022 through 2032. 4,650 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. — BS
