Winemaker Notes

A seamless wine that is rich, yet soft and sumptuous. Vibrant berry fruits with sweet spice and balanced oak.

Pair with steak, lamb, barbeques and hearty stews.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator

Rich in texture, this full-bodied Shiraz offers ripe currant, plum and spice flavors, with a wave of coffee and tobacco notes making the finish more interesting. Drink now through 2018. 3,500 cases made.

RP 87
The Wine Advocate

2008 Lights Out Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color and lifted aromas of warm blackberries and black cherry compote over tar, aniseed, slightly burned toast, vanilla pod and nutmeg. Full bodied with very high acid, the palate lends just enough fruit and a medium level of chewy tannins. The finish is long and straightforward. Drink it now through 2014.

Carmenere

View all wine

Dark, full-bodied, and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère has found great success in Chile, far from its birthplace of Bordeaux. Although Carménère once accompanied Malbec and Petit Verdot as a minor blending grape in Bordeaux, it is now virtually extinct there, though it has been thriving since the mid-nineteenth century in Chile. Originally mistaken for Merlot, it is now successful of its own accord and plantings continue to increase. It is bottled both on its own and as part of Bordeaux-inspired blends.

In the Glass

If not fully ripe, Carménère is often marked by a green, herbaceous character (think green bell pepper and green peppercorn), and expresses flavors of red berry and black pepper when just ripe. With additional hangtime at the end of harvest, it is reminiscent more of blackberry, blueberry, and dark plum, with rich and savory notes of chocolate, coffee, smoke, and soy sauce.

Perfect Pairings

Carménère can easily overpower lighter fare, but makes a great match for a hearty steak or barbecued red meat. It can also work well with white meat when prepared with a richer sauce such as mole.

Sommelier Secret

Perhaps Carménère’s herbal character can be explained in part by familial relations—due to the strange nature of grapevine breeding, Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
