Tasting Notes

As one might expect, this is not a big, deep effort, but rather a wine of quintessential elegance. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by complex, cedary, burning ember, charcoal, menthol, blueberry and raspberry notes. Medium-bodied, elegant, and complex, it is best consumed over the next 7-8 years. Drink 2010-2018.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (188), April 2010

Bright ruby-red. Burgundian aromas of black raspberry, coffee, mocha and smoked meat, lifted by sexy oak. Fat, supple and lush if a bit reduced, with an enticing sweetness but good framing acidity to the flavors of dark cherry, currant and coffee. Finishes with chewy but sweet tannins and very good breadth. A good showing.
