(From 2007 Vintage) The 2007 vintage is powerful, yet seamless. Drawing from our estate vineyards, Canoe Ridge Estate gives elegance, structure and fine-grained tannins, while Cold Creek lends concentrated, old vine intensity. In 2007, we also used Indian Wells Vineyard for a touch of New World opulence.
This wine has lavish aromas of ripe red fruit, complemented by vanilla spice and a hint of mocha. Soft yet full-bodied on the palate, it has a plushness defined by sweet blackberry framed in toasty oak, and a lengthy, elegant finish.
