Winemaker's Notes

Dark ruby in color the aromas of dark fruit like black cherry currant plum and blackberry exude with hints of rose petals and dried cranberries. The pleasant integration of oak and fruit describe a bouquet of aromatic cedar clove cinnamon and dark chocolate. Great mouth feel and balance; black cherry blackberry and currant flavors dominate. Cedar spice chocolate and espresso plus layers of dark fruit flavors blend into a long clean finish.

    (From 2001 Vintage) 13% Merlot; 7% Cabernet Franc; 4% Petit Verdot. While we find no fault with this bottling's very proper varietal themes of cherries, oak and herbs, the one wants for more volume, more range and more overall intensity to be much more than a clean but somewhat hollowed-out wine.
