2013 cabernet sauvignon

Houyi Vineyard

A near perfect vintage with the right balance between warmth, cool nights and no major excesses from Mother Nature. 2013 brought an exhuberent nose of dark red and blackberries. Thick texture, dense but elegant and balanced tannins. The wine has been aromatically expressive since the first days of fermentation. That quality has been steady and consistent during aging and in the first years of bottle aging showing the consistency of this vintage. The wine is textured, velvety, elegant with finishes on a floral nose following the lengthy texture of purple fruit. The 100% new French oak integrates perfectly in the texture to support the dramatic fruit expression.

2014 cabernet sauvignon

Houyi Vineyard

2014 being a dryer year, Ines are darker, oilier and more reserved. Definitively, a sleeper that will take time to develop but is already showing it's big structure and hints of purple fruit. The wine is black and dark, elegantly textured in it's austere youth. Black olive, spices, tobacco, dark cocoa, with hints of vanilla and cigar leaf.  Letting off an elegantly aromatic red and blueberry fruit that's starting to express itself.

2015 cabernet sauvignon

Houyi Vineyard

2015 was one of the warmest years on Pritchard Hill. The terroir absorbed the excesses of mother natured and delivered balanced wines that have kept on building over time. The texture is velvety and elegant and the acidity perfectly integrated. Aromas of Dark blackberry and blueberry, richer as it opens. Definitively a sleeper that will reveal itself.
