2014 THE DUCK'S NUTS
The 2014 vintage produced exceptional wines with distinctive varietal characters. We selected the 3 best French barrels from the entire vintage and made a single release blend. These oak barrels are called T5 and take over 5 years to dry out before being crafted into barrels. This being one (of several) processes involved to create a very high-quality oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec of equal proportions have created a wine with an abundance of complexity, varietal expression and age-worthiness. We hope you enjoy this extremely small volume and rare release that we are very proud of. Strongly recommended to cellar to experience it's full potential.
