Sea Shell Cellars 2015 Low Tide



Varietals: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

A warning shot… a statement… a liquid call to arms.

This 2015 Bordeaux blend demonstrates great ripeness for the vintage with aromas of Rainier cherry, black currant, and olallieberry just bursting out of the glass.  This trend continues on the palate, where a sip of the wine is rewarded with lively notes of raspberry and blackberry along with a refreshing pop of acidity that carries the wine with verve throughout its finish.  Fine grained at first, this wine’s tannins have enough grip to persist before giving way to more subtle notes of baker’s chocolate and espresso, enticing you to take just one more sip!

Only Cabernet from the oldest vines on the Sea Shell estate were picked to make the 2015 Low Tide.  The fruit was cold soaked for three days prior to the initiation of fermentation. After a slow, cool ferment, the wine was macerated on the skins for an additional week to extract all the delicious flavors and chewy tannins that the grapes had to offer.

The 2015 Low Tide was aged in 20% new French oak barriques for 19 months post-fermentation prior to be bottled.
