Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Red garnet color, clean and brilliant. Mature fruit aromas interwoven with subtle nuances of vanilla and coconut. Ample and pleasant. Well-balanced with clear notes of fruit and subtle oak.Ideal with dishes such as seared lamb chops, roast beef, smoked sausages, grilled salmon, stews and even barbecue.

    smooth purple hue, oddly not very aromatic. good fruit taste, plum, cherry followed by earthy tones and a slight spicy tannic finish with some hints of oak

    Medium body. Cherry and black pepper. Easy drinking but unspectacular.
