2016 'Octant' Bordeaux Blend

 As we unveil this sophisticated Bordeaux blend, ‘Octant’ nobly takes its place amongst the Sextant reserve tier of wines. We invite you to journey, indulge, and take pleasure in the intricate aromas of cedar, mesquite, and bramble notes. The palate is fronted by blackberries, cassis, and violets, followed by figs, plums, and brooding cherries. Notice how each varietal component figures exquisitely into the articulate, sequenced, and ever-becoming seamless finish. Practice wisdom by cellaring a case or two as this wine will age well. However, youth should not be wasted on the shelf – so savor in the interim as well.

Winemaker Notes
This inaugural release Bordeaux blend was hand-selected in the vineyard with our most esteemed vineyard blocks. Aged only in French oak, we meticulously select the very best barrels of our Bordeaux varietals, divinely blended to become the ‘Octant’. The 2016 vintage is comprised of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 9% Malbec, and 8% Cabernet Franc. It has been aged for 18 months in 65% new French oak.
