Winemaker's Notes

The color is deep clear garnet red. The nose reveals delicate notes of chocolate, dried fruit and coffee. The lightly toasted wood is subtle and very well integrated. On the palate the wine is solid and powerful, still very young and only just beginning to evolve, with a massive structure and very tight, ripe tannins.

This is an intense wine that offers length rather than roundness. Overall, it is sleek and very voluptuous with notes of ripe and stewed fruit, red currants, cooked plums, black cherries, Morello cherries, and a long, flavourful finish. The tannins are fine but still noticeable. They accompany the fruit and body of the wine for several long minutes.

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"A beautifully crafted wine that has both richness and sweetness. It brings together the fresh character of 2006 with more powerful elements, such as new wood and spice, enveloped plushly with ripe fruit. The tannins have a dark element, but fit well with the sweet fruit. All in all, a delicious wine that also has aging potential.
