Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006! "Loads of blackberry and licorice with hints of meat and smoked oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of very ripe and exotic fruit. Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. Best after 2009."-Wine Spectator

    (From 2001 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fullish yellow, still a hint cloudy. Rather green Sauvignon nose, grassy and very herbaceous, much better on palate, where the fleshiness of ripe fruit shows through. Still, a good, not great, example, with quite a bit of oak to slow up the fruit. (Tasted
