Winemaker Notes

This wine is deep purple in color with a nose suggesting spices, liquorice and cooked red fruit. The palate is full bodied with elegant fruit intensity, some spice and harmonious tannins.

Enjoy with confit of duck, game, black truffle omelette, chicken with tarragon cream, creamy cheeses such as Brie or Langue or chocolate desserts.

65% Grenache, 35% Syrah

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The color of the 2009 Seguret Grande Reserve (a blend of 65% concrete-aged Grenache and 35% oak barrel-aged Syrah from 60-year-old vines) is not dissimilar from the Syrah cuvee, a deep ruby/purple with blue tints. It boasts a stunning bouquet of kirsch, blueberries, blackberries, incense and spice box. Full-bodied and rich, this is a fabulous example of what can be achieved in the outlying Cotes du Rhone-Villages appellations. It ranks alongside the brilliant 2007s produced by Domaine de Mourchon. It should drink well for at least a decade.

Mourchon has quickly emerged as one of the leading estates of the Cotes du Rhone village of Seguret. Normally three cuvees are produced although in 2008, no Grande Reserve was made. Proprietor Walter McKinlay continues to prove that humble pedigrees can turn out silky vinous treasures.
Range: 91-94

Wine Spectator
Dark and juicy, with a lovely espresso and tobacco frame to the dark fig, cassis and violet core. Long and rich through the finish, but with graphite-led cut that adds serious length. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2013. 3,300 cases made.

North Coast

View all wine

Encompassing the grape-growing regions located north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Solano. Napa and Sonoma get all of the attention, but there are a few other counties producing great wine in Northern California. Two notable examples are Mendocino and Lake County, the northernmost winegrowing regions in the state. These AVAs are very different, both from their neighbors to the south and from one another.

Mendocino benefits from the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean and is able to successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. There is a significant focus here on organic viticulture. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Sauvignon Blanc are the dominant varieties. Both regions are excellent sources of high-quality but affordable California wines in a wide range of styles.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
