Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) "This sleeper of the vintage is a dead-ringer for a grand cru red Burgundy given its flowery, raspberry, and cherry jam-like notes. Medium-bodied, delicate, and pure with abundant fruit, this provocative red turned in by proprietor Anthony Perrin ranks alongside this estate's renowned whites. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 90 points
