TASTING NOTES

This wine shows off a beautiful ruby color, dark and gem-like. Cassis drives the nose along with other ripe red fruits. Layers of licorice, leather, tobacco leaf, clove and salted caramel fill out the nose. In addition, there can be found the classic notes of the Black Sage Bench - sage, wet stone, graphite, and iron.

Chateau Helena



Vintage 2014

An early spring, similar to 2013, with bud break and all phonologic events happening in perfect harmony, warmer than average temperatures without severe heat spikes and very hot days. However, August and early September brought in somewhat unusual weather with a few rainstorms and cooler temperatures. October came with much higher than usual temperatures, giving our grapes their final perfect ripening and extra hang time.



Tasting NoteS

Our 2014 Chateau Helena Gracious exudes aromas of freshly picked blueberries, blackcurrants, plum and mocha coffee. The blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a hint of Cabernet Sauvignon intertwine, resulting in a complex wine with an earthy opulence and a long smooth silky finish.



Grape Variety

Merlot 50%, Cabernet Franc 45%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%
