Wine Description

(1977 Vintage) An excellent year. A wine with great grip and backbone. One of the three or four best Vintages since 1945. Will become ready to drink in the late 1990s.

    An incredibly vibrant bottle from a stunning vintage; off-dry with hints of cherry, chocolate and coffee. Hefty tannins are just beginning to recede. 11/2010

    (2007 Vintage) "Offers lovely perfumed aromas and beautiful raspberry and blackberry character, turning to tar, black truffle and wet earth. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a balance of very chewy tannins and sugary fruit at the finish. This goes on and on. The great 1994 again? Best after 2020. 6,500 cases made."

    (1997 Vintage) An unprecedented low yield contributed to the marvelous concentration of the wines produced in this vintage. The very low bunch weight and the fact that the berries themselves were very small also meant that there was much less juice than usual relative to the amount of skins. Consequently even more extraction of color and flavors was possible than in other years. Ideal weather during the vintage, with cool nights followed by hot days, added the finishing touch to the variety of factors which culminated in a classic year. At least 5 years (we recommend up to 20) in the cellar will reward the purchaser with a great wine.
