Product Description

93 Points- Wine Advocate
94 Points- Stephen Tanzer ,IWC
100% Merlot


" Deep ruby with blackish highlights. Very refined nose offers cooler notes of redcurrant, ripe red cherry and fresh raspberry, with pretty mineral and mocha nuances adding complexity. Like liquid silk in the mouth, but with surprising acidity giving shape to the rich, elegant flavors of raspberry and strawberry. Conveys a light, deft touch, and finishes with fine-grained tannins and notes of mocha and delicate roasted herbs. Another mesmerizing wine in an off-year, very much in the vein of the great '87 and '92 made here.(94 pts., ID, Stephen Tanzer's IWC)


Wine Advocate:
"100% Merlot Medium to deep garnet colour. Warm, slightly stewed plum and blackberry aromas seasoned with notes of cinnamon, dried herbs, black olives and musk. Plenty of fleshy fruit on the medium to full bodied palate with medium+ acidity and a medium+ level of velvety tannins to support. Long finish. Drink now to 2020. Tasted April 2009."
