Winemaker Notes

The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008

Deep purple-red in color with intense and complex aromas. The nose has layers, such as spices, black and red fruit, herbs and mineral touches of lead pencil. This wine has elegant balance with velvety and well defined tannins, that evolve towards a concentrated mid palate that is filled with juicy tannins, followed by a very long persistence....

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling

This is very dense and full with loads of blackberries, wet earth and hints of mint. Lead pencil too. Full body and very chewy plus shows hints of new wood and spice. A fruit-forward style.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Deep as a mine, with herbal, tobacco and leather accents sprucing up serious berry fruit flavors. Drink now through 2016.l

WS 93
Wine Spectator

This is a rich and enticing red, with alluring aromas of warm cocoa and roasted vanilla bean giving way to lush plum sauce, cassis and raspberry ganache flavors. The long, smoldering finish is velvety and dripping with pure fruit, all of it backed by a suave tobacco note. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2017. 4,538 cases made.

Michel Rolland fashions this blend from a south-facing amphitheater, where the old vines are predominantly carmenère. The vineyard produces a rich red, pushed to the edge of monumental excess in the warm 2007 vintage. The wine brings sweet things to mind—figs, Morello cherry marmalade, mocha and chocolate—while the texture is extravagant and dense. It’s impressive, not only in stature, but also in the grandeur of its flavors.
