Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) A terrific wine, delicious and classic in structure. Shows the beauty of the blend, which consists of five Bordeaux varieties. Rich in cherries, blackberries, red currants, chocolate, anise and sandalwood, it has a gentle, elegant mouthfeel, and is thoroughly dry.

    (2008 Vintage) Blends ripe, fleshy plum and black cherry flavors with a subtle backbone of acidity and tannins. Slow to unfold, but does so gracefully, revealing dusty earth, cedar and black licorice in an elegant style.

    (2003 Vintage) Classic black-ruby color typical of this blend. Ripe, brambly, coffee and black cherry aromas showcase the varietal, while black olive and dark cocoa scents suggest the wine's Rutherford origin. Medium full-body and firm structure dominant, with the cherry-plum and herb Merlot adding nuance in the finish. Chewy tannins, fine minerality, with vanilla oak-spice adding an elegant touch of sweetness.
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2005 Vintage) 12% Merlot; 4% Cabernet Franc; 2% Malbec; 2% Petit Verdot. Nicely assembled red and black cherry fruit aromas are joined by suggestions of vanilla beans and rich loam, and while this wine has some of the same attractive elements as the bottlings above, it is less complete overall and seemingly less keen in its focus. Its pieces are in good proportion, and a grabby edge of tannin will go away with a bit of bottle age.
