Winemaker's Notes

A wine of outstanding quality and character. Deep purple, black hues and dark edges indicative of good extraction and ripeness. The aromas are complex and continually evolve in the glass. Sweet black fruit (dark cherries, plums and hints of cassis), are interwoven with subtle oak aromas of vanilla, toffee and treacle. Prodigiously ripe fruit dominate the palate. A firm tannin structure is balanced with delicious sweetness.

"Dark fruits, licorice and pepper on the nose. Fairly dense and nicely pliant but brooding, with medicinal flavors of black fruits and licorice. The substantial tannins are sweet, though. I'd give this another year in the bottle to soften."

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
