Winemaker's Notes:

Blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose, pure cassis, blackberry and cherry fruit tones combine with cocoa, coffee and cedar. The palate is big, luscious; full bodied yet vibrant, pure and elegant, with seamless toasty oak integration combining with fine tannins, leading to a long finish.

"Garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Seductive black cherry and glove leather aromas. Soft, creamy texture with ripe plum, cherry and milk chocolate flavors. Lasting ripe black fruit impressions with well-integrated, sweet tannins." 92 Points

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.
