2016 Hypothesis 3L
Golden Mile Bench
An estate grown blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (42%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (19%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (1%) from Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (33%), 1-year-old (37%), and 2-year-old (30%) French oak barrels.
Cassis, sweet tobacco and wild sage aromatics greet your nose with notes of rose petals and Bing cherry. This complex bouquet hints at the intricacies of the palate with fresh juniper, black plum, and dark chocolate. The well-integrated tannin structure provides depth to this richly layered wine. The finish is both long and mouthwatering, balancing sweet fruits and oak spice.
Slow-braised short ribs with charred pepper cream gnocchi.
