Winemaker's Notes:

Deep complex fruit notes of ripe black cherry, French plums and cassis are complemented by violets, baker's spices and a hint of cocoa and dried pipe tobacco. This smooth yet weighty wine possesses a mid-palate density balanced by classic structure, refined tannins and a lengthy finish.

Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

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.
