Winemaker Notes

Deep Ruby – greater density of color than the Clarendon. Ripe black fruits of raspberry and blackberry radiate this fruit driven nose. Slight rose petal and kirsch characters in the background offer definition to the otherwise roundness of the plush berry basket nose. Great integration of flavor within the seamless tannin makes for a rounded, forward drinking and weighty style. Freshness and clarity.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Grenache Hickinbotham Vineyard offers more aromatic complexity as well as several years of aging potential.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Glass-staining purple. Vivid raspberry and candied flowers on the nose, with sexy Asian spices gaining power with air. Deep and sweet but focused, with impressively clean red fruit flavors and slow-building tannins. A spice note kicks in on the back end and adds energy to the deeply concentrated raspberry and candied cherry flavors. As suave as this is right now, I'd hold off on opening mine for another few years.

Wine Spectator

Silky and generous. A lithe mouthful of mineral-accented blackberry and cherry flavors, weaving exotic spice notes through the long, expressive finish.
