Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) It possesses a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of cranberry sauce, black cherries, black currants, dusty, loamy soil, unsmoked cigar tobacco and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied and rich with light tannins as well as a textured mouthfeel.

    Nice five grape blend, mainly Cab. Blueberry, lavender, cocoa, with a touch of flinty minerals. Proper and under control. More competent than exciting, but surely a tasty effort that I enjoyed to the last drop.

    So good! This wine is bold and complex. It reminds me of Vieux Chateau de Roi.
