Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 season had an early and dry spring, followed by a warm summer that resulted in both excellent quality wines and generous yields. The 1997 vintage has become one of the best of the decade. The first aromas are blackberries and fresh mint, with nuances of leather, cedar, dry forest and cola. The flavors are ripe berries, licorice, mocha, dried cherries, truffles and oak. This wine is a complex package with full texture and approachability, but with ageable tannins. This wine will go well with lamb, beef, game and pasta dishes.
