    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1999 vintage of this wine was ranked #2 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2002

    The 2007 Cinq Cépages ("Five Varieties") is a Bordeaux-style blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Malbec (4%), and Petit Verdot (2%). All five varietal components are used each vintage to create the stylized blend that is Cinq Cépages.

    The 2007 vintage of the Cinq Cépages is one of elegance. The nose is vivid with aromas of ripe blackberry, plum and rose petal floral notes. The palate offers a rich, plush dark fruit density surrounded by fine tannins and a raw silk texture. Complex layers of boysenberry, black plum and roasted coffee combine beautifully with notes of mocha. This wine has beautiful oak integration and a juicy core that leads to a lingering finish with hints of clove spice.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Their famous cuvee, which was once named Wine Spectator Wine of the Year, the 2007 Cinq Cepages is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. Hints of bay leaf, black currant, sweet cherry, cedar and subtle smoke are all present in this lush, medium to full-bodied, opulent and heady wine. Broad and savory, it seems to be on a fast evolutionary track and should be drunk over the next decade.
