With the Sextant Caladoc, the revered wine regions of Bordeaux, Mendoza, La Mancha, Southern Rhone, and Southwest France come into play, either Grenache or Malbec having made their mark accordingly. The crossing of these two varietals gives way to a different and distinct vine laden with it’s own singular profile. Expressive contours lead the way: wild blackberries, cranberries, and black cherries at the front; loganberries and nutmeg at the mid-palate; carobs, lavender, and graphite at the periphery. Add balanced acidity to roll with smooth tannins, this wine proves rustic and modern; reserved and forward; delectable and complex, all at the same time. Finally, the lengthy finish glides along, then tapers, reminiscent of certain regional traditions but with a fresh new take.
