2018 Carménère

2018 Carménère

The last of a dying breed. With no vintages of this rare varietal in our foreseeable future it marks the last bottling of this light bodied beauty for now. Signifying the end of a decade’s worth of vintages and some of the first wines crafted at Dubost. Grown on the modern Smart-Dyson system of shoot training it comes from the Colbert Vineyard a little vineyard that Jacob himself helped to plant and maintain. Always wild and in some cases only pruned, it is always difficult and a pain in the ass, mainly due to its late ripening and propensity to push late into the vintage, it reaps its rewards for those willing to wait and work hard to unlock the potential of this varietal which I have deemed the Pinot of Bordeaux.
