Winemaker's Notes

"This is always on the mark. Pretty berry and mineral character throughout. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins, yet they're elegant and refined. A well-done red. Best after 2004."

Garnet red, intense and brilliant, with light orange hints. Penetrating, full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. Dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere, persistent. Recommended with: Roasts, grilled, spit-roast or braised meats, ripe cheeses.
