"Blended of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Ontogeny Proprietary Red Wine gives pure blackberries, black cherries and blueberries with bay leaves and black pepper plus a touch of cedar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresh, grainy and harmonious, finishing long and juicy. 2,963 cases produced."
"Ontogeny. Like our EE, this is more Cabernet Sauvignon then ever before. Less mineral, more pure fruit. It also has a layer of richness that the previous Ontogeny wines did not have. The fruit profile from the additional Cabernet Sauvignon is blackberry, boysenberry, and there is a hint of mocha that really pops on the finish. Deep purple, incredibly seductive. This is as decadent as Ontogeny has ever been. Ontogeny is the last blend to be put together, therefore the last to be reviewed..." - Winery
