Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a fine, intense color that is just beginning to turn and a very rich, full bouquet, displaying autumnal, slightly animal aromas with a hint of vanilla and cocoa. It is elegant on the palate, with well-rounded tannins that give plenty of support and considerable refinement while revealing preserved fruit, cherry and toast flavours which combine harmoniously and gently in a finely balanced, dense yet suave finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Seductively rich and supple with layers of elegant plum, cherry and currant flavors that are beautifully defined before the tannins kick in on the finish. The notes linger on and on."
97 Points

"ark ruby/purple with some pink at the rim, this wine has a super bouquet of sweet, toasty new oak, plums, black currants, licorice, and cedar. The wine is concentrated on the palate, rich and powerful, yet atypically soft and fleshy for a 1986."
