Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) “…the aromatics reveal notes of mocha, coffee, smoke, violets, spice box, wild cherry, and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, and well-balanced, this superb effort will continue to evolve for several years…93” WA 3/08

    Good deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and graphite; showed almost Brunello-like dried fruits, chestnut and lavender with extended aeration. Penetrating and powerful, with perfectly integrated acidity intensifying the winersquo;s extremely rich flavors and accentuating the impression of energy in the mouth. As sweet as this is today, itrsquo;s also primary and utterly fresh, with perfectly judged oakiness. Expands and builds impressively on the back end. This was better every time I went back to it. If you can find and afford this wine, Irsquo;d give read more...it at least four or five years in the cellar.    (hide)
