This Lost Wolf Reserve is best barrel that just stands an inch above the rest. Classification and blind tasting of all our 2017 barrels was painstakingly carried out by several family members, who somehow managed to narrow it down (with no arguments) to the two barrels. It was meant to be one, but two could not be separated.
The Reserve is a straight out ‘vanity’ for Wolf. This is the wine ‘Wolf’ wants to drink in 20 years, just like the wines made under contract in 90’s from the family vineyard by Charlie Melton and David Powel that the family are still enjoying now.
This wine has a little addition of Cabernet. Under screwcap so ‘Wolf’ and the pack can be drinking this wine in 20 years. Packed in a wooden case with a screwed down lid. Why – Wolf has a habit of grabbing bottles and ensuring he has to find a screwdriver first, avoids regret later. This is the bottle you open first with friends. Wolf makes a fortified for later ‘just one more’.
