Winemaker's Notes

Having a beautiful saturated color, the wine's nose is enchanting ith a complex potpourri of rich, ripe sweet black fruits, plum, and spicebox with hints of beautiful herbs de Provence. The palate of the wine is structured with fine-grained smooth tannins and notes of mineral, creme cassis, and finishes very long with monumental purity.

This wine will drink wonderfully upon release, but has only begun to show its merits, ultimately revealed with some cellar time. Cabernet Sauvignon domintes the blend as usual, with Merlot providing some aromatic lift and palate rounding, and petit verdot providing power, plum and black fruits, and agebility.
