The Jean Louis Vermeil Cabernet Sauvignon is a captivating wine that showcases a rich tapestry of flavors. Its deep, dark blue fruits take center stage, offering a luscious blend of ripe blueberries and blackberries that coat the palate. Subtle undertones of iron and lavender add intriguing floral and mineral notes, while the essence of cassis lends a touch of elegance. Baking spices and leather contribute to its complexity, providing a delightful interplay of sweet and savory elements. The wine's finish is marked by a pronounced mineral character, reminiscent of crushed rock and pencil shavings, adding a layer of sophistication. With its impressive fruit density and well-structured framework, this Cabernet Sauvignon promises to age gracefully for the next 10 to 20 years, evolving into an even more remarkable expression of its terroir and craftsmanship.
Named after Coach’s great grandfather and father, Jean Louis Vermeil, this a perfect marriage between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This approachable and charismatic Cabernet Sauvignon blend gets the best of both the Rosedale and the Pickett Road blocks.
