Winemaker's Notes:

This flashy, richly textured, round wine ends with a boatload of sweet, fleshy, black cherries and cocoa powder.

It's the one to drink whilst you're waiting for the senior one to mature. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and completely derived from the Missouri Hopper Vineyard. This wine was one of the first to be designated 'Missouri Hopper' with the 2008 vintage.

About World's End:

Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).
