Winemaker's Notes

Luscious, dark and dense, this is midnight in the glass and manna on the tongue. A blend of 40% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 25% Grenache. Deep, black fruits such as boysenberry take on an almost syrup-like richness, with mineral highlights that make this wine completely fresh and alive. Great balance, great vibrancy of fruit and tangy acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"It is always a great bargain and the 2007 Les Amis de la Bouissiere is little short of sensational. Dark chocolate, black cherry, roasted meats, and toasted, salted pecans are dominant throughout this rich red, which retains a savory, saline brightness in its long finish that consistently sends you back for the next sip."
