2011 1/2 ASS Limited Release #5 - An expressive blend of 34% Syrah, 22% Merlot, 17% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 9% Carmenere leads way with dark fruits, ripe berry, coco and rose petal perfume. It is lush, rich and complex with a solid core of refined tannins, oak highlights, tobacco leaf and spice. It showcases Ceil du Chuval, Upland, Coyote Canyon, Phinny Hill and Seven Hills Vineyards.
1/2 ASS is dedicated to the artful expression of blending wine. These limited release wines, each of them never the same, are hand crafted efforts that break away from traditional blends. It's meaning runs deep in my soul and my belief that wine starts in the vineyard but truly great wines start from the heart and a passion within, an artistic expression of a moment that will never be again nor created by another. These limited release wines are a tribute to living life to the fullest as nothing in life should be done 1/2 ASS.
