Collaboration Series IV is a Merlot-dominant blend, with judicious amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with the occasional dash of Petit Verdot. Winemaker Carolyn Lakewold brings her joie de vivre and flair to a project that incorporates her passion for artisanal winemaking with the oldest Merlot vines at Ciel du Cheval. Using only 100-percent free-run juice, Carolyn crafts a wine that is ripe, rich and complex with velvety soft tannins. [+]
