Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) The unmistakable signature of vanilla bean and coconut scents fold in nicely with taut yet supple tiers of cedar, black cherry, currant and berry jam notes. Full-bodied, ending with firm, structured tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

Tight, earthy and unusually tannic for this wine, with fresh earth, mineral and dried currant fruit shaded by a dill-coconut flavor.

    (2006) built around creamy mocha, cedary oak and dill flavors, with dried currant, sage and underbrush notes. full bodied and balanced, this smoothes out on the finish where it gains a black licorice and mineral edge. decant. source: WS

    Had with a standing rib roast and roasted vegetables. We let it breathe for about an hour and then decanted. While very good it seemed a bit tired/possibly past it's peak.

    友人を招いてのホームパーティ、寝かせていた妻がアメリカで買ってきてくれた、昔お店で呑んで美味しかった思い出のあるワイン。ミントやベリーの果実香が強く、深く濃い赤紫色。ベリーの熟した果実味、甘みが感じられ豊かなタンニンがありバランスのよい味わいがレベル高く、非常に美味しいワイン。熟成された味わいのイイ一本ですね!
