Winemaker Notes

This flashy, richly textured, round wine ends with a boatload of sweet, fleshy, black cherries and cocoa powder.

It's the one to drink whilst you're waiting for the senior one to mature. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and completely derived from the Missouri Hopper Vineyard. This wine was one of the first to be designated 'Missouri Hopper' with the 2008 vintage.

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines blackberry, cassis, licorice, violet, mint and minerals. Dense, juicy and sharply delineated, with a supple texture to its black cherry, cassis and bitter chocolate flavors. Large-scaled, harmonious, ripe wine with no rough edges. Still, I'd give this distinctly chocolatey wine a few years in the cellar to absorb some of its tongue-dusting tannins. Finishes with noteworthy persistence.

World's End

View all wine
Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).
