2021 Sextant X-Series Marselan

A brooding deep red-violet complexion reveals dark plums, strawberries, and boysenberries. The lavish mouthfeel is underscored by supple tannins and ample acidity as tinges of dried herbs, blood oranges, and red currants tug at the mid-palate. Finishes with a gradual release of black tea, hibiscus, and fine hints of sage.

2021 Sextant X-Series Marselan
Winemaker Notes
Marselan can be a very slow-ripening varietal; it is essential that we give it time, otherwise we can end up with an earthier and less vibrant vintage. In 2021, we timed our picking right on the mark, resulting in a bold, juicy wine. Marselan produces a small berry with tight clusters, similar to one of its parent grapes, cabernet sauvignon. Grenache, the other parent, tends to have more impact on the aroma, showcasing wild blue fruits. We aged this wine in a small portion of new French oak for 18 months to let the fruit shine.
