Winemaker's Notes

Since bottling, this wine has been developing an increasingly complex mixture of ripe plum, black cherry, and earth tones. On opening, more mineral and forest floor tones are noted with a hint of rhubarb (as in strawberry-rhubarb pie). As the wine breathes, the CMR trademark East India spices and dark, rich fruits begin to appear. The wine continues to evolve in the glass to late aromas of cardamom, tealeaf, and smoky, roast coffee framed in sweet vanilla and cola. On the palate, the wine's layered tannins indicate that this offering will continue to age for a long, long, time. The structure has a rich middle core that supports both the acid and tannin structure, making the wine enjoyable now, but patience should reward the collector with a superbly sculptured wine perhaps even 10 years down the track.

Alcohol: 13.8% by volume
