    Winemaker's Notes:

    Direct from the winery, some older releases of "library" wines that are drinking beautifully.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Impeccably balanced, rich and polished, with a pure, plush core of blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit that picks up hints of anise, cedar and sage, finishing with a long, rich, intricate aftertaste. Excellent structure, too, with a complex aftertaste that echoes vanilla and fruit. Drink now through 2010.

    Wine Spectator

    Good red-ruby color. Plum, currant, tobacco, licorice and cedar on the nose. Lush, sweet and concentrated, with very ripe plum and strawberry flavors nicely lifted by inner-palate florals and complicated by hints of tobacco and espresso. A bold, juicy merlot with personality. Contains 19% cabernet franc and 6% petit verdot.
