Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) Appearance: Deep garnet. Aroma: Inviting aromas of dark cherry, sage, and red plums. Complex layers of ripe berries, with undertones of vanilla and cloves. Flavors: Full-bodied and textural, with ripe flavors of black plum and cherry, cocoa and cassis. A concentrated, rich palate with round tannins leads to a long finish interwoven with blackberry, anise and mocha.

    (From 2005 Vintage) 73% Cabernet Sauvignon; 23% Merlot; 4% Bordelais reds. With decently focused cassis-like fruit as its central theme and accents of cocoa and sweet oak in support, this wine finds its full-bodied, supple texture set against decently fruited, somewhat coarsely grained impressions, and that slight edginess stays around until the finish. A bit of cellaring is needed.
