    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has a phenomenal 96% Fruit Weight and is simply AWESOME. It is immensely complex, from the aromatic fresh flowers and berry fruit to the spices, tobacco, plum, coffee, and several kinds of chocolate – just put it in your mouth and entertain yourself for hours with the array of flavours. The perfect balance of structure and Fruit Weight gives this wine an explosion of flavor, a rich, opulent, silky mouth feel and a length that seems to never end. It is a classic Velvet Glove.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very deep purple-black in color, the 2011 Velvet Glove is chock full of ripe and spicy blackberries, fresh blueberries and creme de cassis aromas that are accented by Chinese five spice notes and hints of chocolate, vanilla and some tar. Full-bodied, it is ripe and rich with a nice line of acid and medium-firm, fine-grained tannins. Concentrated and persistent on the finish, it shows beautiful elegance and freshness and is a nicely delineated and expressive example of the varietal and its regional home. However, it needs another year or more in bottle. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+.

    The Wine Advocate

    Rich, supple, complex and expressive, this is dense with smoky blackberry, wild blueberry, tomato leaf and exotic spice complexity, finishing seamlessly with refined tannins and just enough acidity to keep it all together. Shows tremendous presence.
