Winemaker's Notes:

This deeply colored wine shows intense aromas of blackberry syrup, framed by hints of baker's spices, vanilla, licorice and toast. In the mouth, the wine has concentrated bright forward-fruit supported by textural richness and mid-palate volume together with a lengthy dark chocolate-dominated finish.

75% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

About Clos Pegase:

Completed in 1987, Clos Pegase was designed to be a temple to wine on a 47 acre Calistoga vineyard. The winery has a total of 450 acres, mostly located in Carneros. The Clos Pegase label features Pegasus, painted circa 1890 by the French artist Redon. This painting is winery owner Jan Shrem's favorite work of art from his extensive private collection.
