Winemaker's Notes

#86 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Critical Acclaim

"A big, rich and ripe red, with a meaty aroma that leads to intense mocha and dark chocolate notes. Hints of cream, dark cherry and spice complete the package. Finishes with intense beefy notes. Drink now through 2014. 2,200 cases made. "
92 Points

"With 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 15 months in oak, this is a big, powerful wine loaded with rich fruit and sultry spice. Dark cherry, cigar box, cinnamon and cardamom abound on the nose, with more kirsch, pepper and allspice unfolding on the palate. Creamy and lush in the mouth with a long, evolving finish full of mocha and dark chocolate-covered cherries. Delicious now or hold for 2-3 years. "
