2019 Fait Accompli

2019 Fait Accompli

Mac's Bordeaux-Rhône blend!  Fait Accompli means "a thing that has already happened or been decided before those affected hear about it, leaving them with no option but to accept it."  Paso Robles is known for being an amazing climate for growing Rhône's and Cabernet Sauvignon, and this is a blend from Paper Street and our Estate Vineyard.  The Cab, Syrah, and Petit Verdot coming off of these vineyards are too good to do anything other than its own bottling, which is why it is a Fait Accompli.

VINIFICATION

Destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks and small, open top bins, spending between 15-20 days on skins, with a combination of pump overs and punchdowns during cold soak and fermentation. Blended and racked once prior to bottling. Aged 20 months in 265 liter barriques, 35% of which were new. 

TASTING NOTES

Violet, currant, cedar, forest floor, creme de cassis, star anise, frankincense, sweet mint, creosote, spring flowers, and exotic fruits. The palate is dense and electric, with blueberry, gravel, and a touch of snickerdoodle. The finish is juicy and precise with a touch of bittersweet chocolate.
