    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark, dense crimson color. The nose is elegant, expressing lots of ripe fruit (blackberries and blackcurrants), and also some aromas of white flowers with a few notes of mint and white pepper. The palate is velvety, developing the same flavors as the bouquet with great freshness and some additional notes of mocha and chocolate. The structure is complex and balanced, with racy, silky tannins. Overall, a very appealing, dense, well-balanced wine with a long, persistent finish. The terroir's signature characteristics are recognizable in this elegant, seductive, classic vintage.

    Blend: 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This beauty, which achieved 13% natural alcohol (because of the late Indian Summer that saved the vintage), boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of graphite, ink, black currants, raspberries, charcoal, and cigar box. Spicy, elegant, layered, and medium to full-bodied, this delicious, complex offering should be consumed over the next 12-15 years.

    90 Points
    The Wine Advocate

    While initially the fruit seems tight and stalky, there is also a rich layer of spice, black currant and balanced wood flavors. Acidity is prominent, but it fits well into the fruit.
