Winemaker Note: “Soif” is French for “thirst”, and this wine embraces the Vin de Soif style so popular in Parisian wine bars: low tannin, juicy, and fun. This year, we led with our lighter style Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon; we picked it early, with good acidity and lots of bright citrus and red fruit aromas and flavors. Once again Soif ends up being the wine version of the friend who is always positive, who refuses to let you take life too seriously. Its fresh, low tannin nature allows it to be served cool to chilled, making for a flexible red wine that helps you look forward to warm days.
Description: The two Cabernets are driving the character of this wine, lively and aromatic with plenty of the classic herbal notes tangled up in the bright and fruity carbonic character. Merlot and Petit Verdot provide a bit of roundness to the middle, along with bright acidity. This wine embraces the cool climate of 2020 and fits perfectly into the playful nature we are finding in this wine year in and year out.
