The Making of a Storm

Inspired by the bold wines of Bordeaux, we blended some incredible Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc into the perfect storm of flavors and textures.

To make a powerful wine, we needed powerful fruit. This is where the Petit Verdot comes in. Petit Verdot is an underdog. It's underrated and typically not seen on its own or as the star of blends because of its intensity. Bertus and our team wanted to give this varietal a chance to shine, and you better believe they did just that.

Awhile back, we found ourselves on a serious Hemingway kick, obsessed with reading about the life and times of this deeply flawed yet adventurous and artistic man. When we learned that his first typewriter was a Corona #3, we tracked down and purchased the same vintage and model to see how it felt and if it would inspire us. And it did.

The devil whispered in my ear, you're not strong enough to withstand the storm. Today, I whispered in the devil's ear, I am the storm.Typewriter

For this intellectual blend, we decided to sit down and type out one of our favorite quotes about standing up to adversity, looking it dead in the eye and saying, “bring it on”.

Intense aromas of plum, blackberry, violets and thyme hint towards the velvety mouthfeel and luscious dark flavors that make this blend a striking and downright cerebral wine. 

I am the Storm.
