2020 Fait Accompli

2020 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

Syrah component saw some whole cluster fermentation, Bordeaux varietals were 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. Syrah component was racked, blended, and returned to barrique once prior to bottling. Aged 20 months in 225-L and 265-liter barriques, 45% of which were new. 10% whole cluster across the blend.
