2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer
weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly
selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. The
result of these amazing conditions is a perfectly balanced and elegantly textured wine
with supple tannins, rich fruit concentration and alluring notes of spice and wood. It is
a lovely accompaniment to filet mignon topped with bleu cheese, grilled lamb chops
or truffle buttered potatoes.
