2016 Sextant X-Series Marselan

Sextant was one of the first to plant Marselan in the United States. It’s a cross-pollination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache in the pursuit of the most desirable qualities between them. Acreage in the scenic vistas of Paso Robles share geographical affinities with the original plantings along the Mediterranean shores of the Languedoc region in France. Raspberries, cherries, pomegranates are in a swirl with red currants and wild strawberries. Cloves, lavender, and hibiscus notes waft keenly on the nose. Deliberate tannins and acidity allow the flavors to cascade smoothly across the palate. The nuanced finish sums up the charming profile, the most desirable qualities having pleasantly come to fruition.

2016 Sextant X-Series Marselan
Winemaker Notes
Sextant is very proud to have been one of the first to plant Marselan in the United States. This special cross-bred varietal of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache produces a beautifully vibrant wine each and every year. The hand picked fruit is fermented in small lots to allow it to show its Grenache like aromas with the bold Cabernet Sauvignon mouthfeel. This vintage was aged in 40% new French Oak for 18 months.
