    Winemaker's Notes:

    As always, we consider the Elevage, our proprietary blend, a pure reflection of the vintage. This wine has depth, weigh and extraordinary potential for ageing.

    Dark red with a purple hue. Luscious blackberry, cocoa, cassis and hints of vanilla with a bit of clove and coffee. Velvet, rich and mouth-filling with the burst of red fruit in the front palate and a long sensual finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Absolutely delicious, offering a flood of ripe, sweet blackberry, currant, chocolate, anise and spice flavors. Impressive for its savory power, this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot will easily ride out the next 8-10 years.

    Still young and tightly wound, but offers appealing aromas of blackberry and violet, with deep flavors of cherry, tar and cigar box that are wrapped in ripe but stout tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2019. 975 cases made.

    The estates 2008 Elevage is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot. It shows good up-front fruit, but I don't find the sheer personality of the estate's finest Cabernet Sauvignons here. Sweet dark berries, licorice, mint and flowers are nicely layered into the generous yet delicate finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
