    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 vintage is a rich garnet color and has aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and cassis. There are also nuances of leather, toasted hazelnut and winter spices. On the palate, this firmly textured wine offers a full mouthfeel with flavors of coffee, chocolate-covered cherries, berry tart and currants. The tannins are very well integrated, making them approachable at an early age. There are multiple layers to this complex blend that reveal themselves through decanting or by giving the wine time to open up in the glass.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very rich and ripe in fruit, and also rich in new oak. The combination makes for mouth-filling blackberry and cherry pie filling, currant, licorice, dark chocolate and spicy flavors that are frankly delicious. The finish is quick, suggesting this lovely wine is best enjoyed in its youth.
