Le Petit Caporal is 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. All the grapes come from the stellar Argetsinger Vineyard and its adjoining Glen Eldridge vineyard, sloping steeply into the eastern shores of Seneca Lake.
Layers of plum and cherry fruit combine with brown spices as well as elements of violet and “forest floor." This Pinot shows a soft, round mouthfeel with a rich texture. The finish is long and smooth with a nice spicy finish.
