Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas and flavors of black and red fruit, with hints of cassis and subtle notes of oak unleash in your glass. This red blend has great structure and balance and although you would assume it to have a short finish, it is quite long. A wine sure to make you drool.

The Winery:
Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset's French Bulldog, Frenchie, represents the very essence of style, charisma and personality. With his stout stature and ability to steal everyone's heart, he is definitely royalty around the winery. Although he may not go down in history as one of the greatest military leaders of all time, Frenchie will definitely go down in history as the greatest four-legged winemaker.

Napoleon's Coronation:
On Sunday, December 2, 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned as Emperor of France. Not wanting to be an old regime monarch, Napoleon explained that, "to be king is to inherit old ideas and genealogy. I don't want to descend from anyone...the title of Emperor is greater." Napoleon has gone down in history as the greatest leader of France.
