Winemaker's Notes

Charmail terroir produces highly colored wines that are powerful and made to be laid down.

Critical Acclaim

"An elegant, pretty effort, the 2002 offers up scents of smoke, black cherries, cassis, and earth. It possesses medium body, fine depth, a savory texture, and excellent purity. Drink it over the next 6-7 years (reviewed April 2005)."
88 Points

"Ruby-red. Spicy aromas of currant and espresso. At once smooth and vinous, with flavors of currant and leather complicated by nutty oak. Offers less verve and thrust than the young 2003, but then this is still a bit disturbed. Finishes with good length.
Range: 87-88"

I finally opened the bottle and felt some trepidation as I did not know what to expect. I had read a suggestion that it be paired with lamb - I hate lamb. So I tried it with a hearty beef dish and enjoyed it very much!
