(From 2009 Vintage) By nose: Vanilla and spice, ripe red apple and a touch of lees on the finish. By mouth: Savory, complex and satisfying, a touch of minerality, tarragon and vanilla. Definitely a food wine. Pair this wine with roast chicken, crab cakes, salmon, halibut, lobster, grilled mushrooms, fava beans and buttered corn.
By nose: Forest Floor, plum jam and cola. By mouth: Dark Cherry, soft resolved sweet tannins with a long finish. Match with stews, mushrooms, roasted chicken, roasted pheasant, roasted duck, roasted quail, rabbit any way and soft ripe cheese. Great with a properly prepared omelette.
