The Aliette vineyard is maturing beautifully, consistently producing some of our most subtle and elegant wines. This is immediately evident in the complex aromatics where lifted red and black fruits are followed by fragrant floral notes of rose and violet. In the mouth the wine is full and generous with round dark fruits, blackberries, cherries and plum, whose concentration is balanced by supple, fine grained tannins. Hints of toast and caramel accompany the lingering finish. With its intriguing combination of power and finesse, Aliette will be a great companion for such dishes as rack of lamb, barbequed steak and stuffed eggplant. A wine of this scale will only improve with age and can be cellared for 5-10 years. Decanting an hour or two before serving is also advised, especially if you can't wait to sample it now.
