Winemaker's Notes

"Good dark red with ruby highlights. Piercing aromas of blackberry, raspberry, sandalwood and pungent herbs. Sweet, spicy and downright sexy, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to complicate the raspberry fruit. Finishes long, with dusty, suave tannins and enticing mineral bite. With its terrific lift and energy, this reminded me of a top grower Beaujolais from the outstanding 2005 vintage." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 90 Points
