Running The Black Dog
Racked out the Black Dog the other day for a little look.
For those who don't know, 'black dog' is our working name for a small batch of exquisite 2005 red that's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. It's dark and brooding; the structure is perfect and the contributions by the barrels are noteworthy.
It goes back to barrel today. If we chose to follow this project to the end we'll be looking at about 100 cases in the $25 - $35 / bottle range.
