Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) A powerful, sensual wine that demonstrates remarkable character and finesse from start to finish. The nose is a melange character is noted on the palate. Ample tannins and concentrated fruit join on the middle palate where they linger along with the smoky finish.Alcohol 13%

    While very ripe, loaded with sweet oak and close to plush on the palate, this weighty wine displays fairly deep fruit and hints of polish that separate it from the excessive and overripe crowd. It is underlain with a full measure of tannin, yet, those tannins are fine-grained and never assaultive, and, while we would not rush to drink it up soon, we see real refinement ahead some three to five years down the line.
