Winemaker's Notes

A glass-coating opaque purple color, it has an alluring bouquet of smoke, toasty oak, incense, black cherry, and plum. Supple-textured, ripe, and concentrated, it has layers of sweet black fruit, ripe tannins, and excellent balance.

Great combined with delicate dishes, grilled meats, and chocolate desserts.

Critical Acclaim

"All of the following red wines were produced with native ferments. The 2008 Grand Vin is a blend of 85% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot. Opaque purple in color, it proffers an alluring nose of sandalwood, exotic spices, floral notes, and assorted black fruits. This leads to a voluptuous, concentrated, impeccably balanced wine that has the structure to evolve for 3-4 years. Its drinking window will extend from 2014 to 2020 if not longer."
