Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Aromas of plums and chocolate with hints of spices. Full body, with velvety tannins and a clean finish. Lots of cedar and nuts with fruit on the finish."

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2001 Vintage) A deep garnet with glossy highlights. Nose is slightly peppery with scents of soft fruit, such as blackcurrant and raspberry. Merlot is predominant and marked by an honest attack that is well rounded and full. A supple wine, with a soft tannic structure, well balanced and not overpowered by wood. A very well balanced and elegant wine with an extensive lingering finish.
