Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
92.5% Merlot from our oldest Merlot vines, planted in 1990; 6% Cabernet Franc from Surrey Vineyards; and 1.5% Petit Verdot from Sam McCullough’s vineyard.
Winemaker Notes
Almost black with a dark red rim in color. Chalk and flinty notes mixed with cassis and ripe blackberries, hints of toasted almonds and dark chocolate. The mouth-feel is powerful with amazing concentration and depth. Ripe subtle fruit is interlaced with layers of rich velvet tannins and a fine balanced acidity. This is a wine that should be experienced with your eyes closed, not distracted by the demands of the day. Inhale the deep aromas of cranberries, lilac, mushrooms, sandalwood, vanilla, and licorice. There is rich ripe fruit at its core: blackberries, ripe black cherries, prunes and figs. Layers of velvet tannins make this wine a powerhouse and, together with notes of licorice, leather, toasted oak and dark chocolate, it’s a classic wine of the highest caliber. The finish is long and tightly woven with wonderful waves of lingering flavors, leaving a lasting impression. This is a wine to lay down for many years.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve slightly below room temperature. Pair this special wine with big flavors, such as lamb, steak, aged cheeses and good quality chocolate with a high percentage of cacao. Or enjoy it on its own... with no distractions.
