Winemaker's Notes

This wine is drinking extremely now right now. 2007 is a vintage with all the hype, so we have to sell the 2006 vintage to make room for 2007. Take advantage, and enjoy this beauty. Have a glass and listen to Peter Bjorn and John's song "Young Folks".

"Dark purple. Explosively perfumed bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, lavender, rose and cocoa powder; smells like a great Burgundy. Deep, supple and sweet, with sexy red and dark berry preserve flavors, silky tannins and suave floral pastille qualities. Seems to gain in sweetness on the long, sappy finish.
