2014 Tournesol Vertice Cabernet Sauvignon — Coombsville
Bob and Anne Arns present as Lot 128, a five case lot of Tournesol estate-grown 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced with small amounts of Malbec also grown in their Coombsville vineyard, the wine will age 24 months in French oak barrels. The wine was made by renowned winemaker Ken Bernards.
The Tournesol vineyards, planted in 1999, lie on 15 acres of gently sloping terrain 300 feet above the valley floor. The southern edge of the property is bordered by Murphy Creek while the northern edge includes Lake Louise, a recreational lake fed by Witweather Creek. The five Bordeaux varieties are planted and used by Bernards to craft a small collection of limited production wines.
