We Have Released 2011 V3 For Your Enjoyment

V3 is Baehner Fournier Estate Vineyards in a Bordeaux Bottle! We had a smaller crop of Cabernet Sauvignon harvested in 2011 due to weather conditions at bud break but the fruit we brought in at harvest was concentrated and delicious.The Merlot and Petit Verdot vines achieved a wonderful outcome in quantity and quality. Couple this with a natural fermentation of single berries devoid of stems, a slow malolactate spontaneous second fermentation, eighteen months ageing in 35% new French oak barrels under cool temperature controlled conditions in the cellar then carefully bottled last March, our new winemaker Steve Clifton gave us the ” release command” last week in time for its presentation at the Celebration of the Harvest Festival. The response put smiles on Vickie and my face. The 2011 V3 Bordeaux Blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Petit Verdot and is ready for the long run! Drink it now or along the way as it reaches full maturity over the next five years.BFV2011V3inaglass
