Winemaker's Notes

This wine opens with perfumed aromas of black cherry and raspberry, spicy plum and violets. On the palate, blueberry, plum, cassis and earthy notes converge around a fresh core of bright acidity and plush tannin lending this wine structure, vitality and grace. There is precision in the expression of fruit and an elegant yet ample succulent structure that progresses to a finish that is long and lasting with hints of blueberries, spiced cherries, exotic incense and fresh rose petals.

    (From 2010 Vintage) Fruit, flowers, spice, mineral and earth; this wine exhibits all of these elements both aromatically and in the form of flavor. Red fruits are abundant on the nose - currants and marionberry, cherry and pomegranate, which turn towards raspberry
