    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red color, the Desiderio 2008 reveals inviting aromas of blackberries and red currant, unfolding on a bed on undergrowth and spiced with hints of mint and sage leaves. Full-bodied, with elegant tannins and fresh acidity, the 2008 Desiderio provides a lush, long-lasting drinking experinece.

    Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    A black cherry flavor is at the center of this red, surrounded by vanilla, smoke and spice notes. This will take a year or so to absorb the oak, while the finish is fresh and long. Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2023.

    Wine Spectator

    Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice and cocoa, plus a sexy note of smoky oak. Large-scaled, thick and sweet, but with harmonious acids providing great lift and a sense of freshness to its black fruit and floral flavors. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and palate-staining black fruits. A great wine that manages to maintain impressive verve.
