Winemaker's Notes:

"A deep well of black fruit, event the color shows off the generous plumminess of this wine. The fruit is supple and bold enough to remain juicy as oak forms a structure around it, powerful enough to shape the oak into its own voluptuous curves. Firm with a pleasing juiciness to enjoy now, this is balanced and gripping to benefit from several years of age."

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.
