2014 X-Series Caladoc
Dark in color and rich on the palate this wine explodes with wild blackberry, fennel, and cherry tobacco upon entry. In the mid palate the more savory and earthy components show themselves. Porcini mushrooms, cinnamon bark, and dried cranberries lead to a firm but gracious finish that lingers long after the last sip. This wine exudes all of the fruit driven aspects of the Grenache varietal and the more earthy and savory notes of the Malbec varietal.
Our Caladoc is a grape hybrid of Grenache and Malbec sourced from our estate vineyard in the El Pomar District of Paso Robles. Sextant is extremely proud to be the first winery to import and certify these vines in the United States. Known for its balance between both savory and fruit forward characteristics we age this wine for 20 months in 50% new French oak.
