Alchemy of Dreams Ascension

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

In dreams, we are possessed of an alternative vision of reality, and through alchemy, we transform. The alchemy of dreams is therefore the transformation of the unseen into the real, and the spark of life within. With wine transformed from the vessel of the grape into the elixir that fills our glass, we see the magical power of alchemy, where grapes are converted into a new state, wine, that itself elicits dreams… A surreal state in between worlds, the Alchemy of Dreams is creation brought to life… and so, life itself! All our senses are captured through the alchemy of dreams, and our senses lifted to a new dimension as we create our own vision of the world! To further dreams, emotions, creations and transformations… to Alchemy!

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Notes of black currant, brandied cherries and a touch of black licorice.

Palate: 

Commanding flavors of wild raspberry with hints of toasted vanilla and roasted coee lead to a long, pleasurable finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

This decadent Cabernet Sauvignon from Knights Valley is the beginning of our Tryptich of Life! It portrays the power of dreams. Frenchie arrives from the old world on cloud nine, rising above his own limitations to create a new reality in the land of his dreams… He rises thanks to the inspiration of the new world and the spirit of wine. Whichever way you arrive, you can transcend to become more than yourself!
