(2006 Vintage) The bouquet of the 2006 Memento shows a touch of cassis, and ripe redand black fruits, and light toasty oak. On the palate ripe, sweet tanninsare evident. An extended amount of time aging in barrel has further concentrated this wine and added nuances of coffee and vanilla. This is awine of layers and finesse with all elements in perfect harmony. This winewill be great as a stand alone but would pair wonderfully with heartymeats and pasta dishes.
Wine Enthusiast(2006 Vintage) "The alcohol is a shocking 16%, but the truth is this wine is deliciously drinkable, in a soft, velvety way. Shows decadent flavors of blackberry essence, cherry tart, dark chocolate and cedar, grounded by earthy notes of sage. Very rich and exotic, almost a liqueur. Drink now". - S.H.
