Wine Description

A very fine wine, basically a Bordeaux blend except with a splash of Syrah, which adds a meat and violet flower note to the ripe, powerful black currants. New oak shows up in the smoky, cedary overlay. It’s a tannicly dry wine, in the way of Napa mountain Cabs, but so balanced and refined.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Red fruits dominate the welcoming aromas, with noticeable black currant, cloves and cinnamon balanced with hints of vanilla toast. In the glass, a soft entry leads to red berries and a round mid-palate. It finishes with soft, approachable tannins and mountain-picked raspberries. A bit of pleasant vanilla from the oak sits in the background.
