A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Beautiful aromas of smoky forest floor, plums, red and black currants, and black rasberries are followed by a wine displaying supple tannins, broad, savory fruit flavors, full body, and a silky texture. This harmonious, luscious 2006 can be drunk now and over the next 10/15 years. Not a surprise it took Double Gold. Will sell out quickly!
After a wonder 2007 vintage from the Corotto Vineyard the 2008 is no disappointment. The same wonderful vineyard characters of raspberries, cherries and pomegranate are still dominate with supple hints of spices and earth tones to complete the package. The wines texture is more gentle in nature and forms a classic Pinot profile on palate with a lively acid and tannin balance, with a long nice finish to round it out. Another home run for sure!!
