Tasting Notes:

Complex and seductive, the nose of this wine offers up creamy, spicy oak aromas that co-mingle sensuously with black cherry, plum, tobacco and then a subtle whiff of violet. The palate continues the elegant pas de deux of fruit and oak: refined, svelte and elegant with layer upon layer of black fruit compote, cocoa, earth and spice. It's a powerful wine which is subtle and integrated rather than chunky or muscular. Harmonious, velvety smooth and mature, it's a wine that over delivers. The tail lingers long on a rich note.

The vineyards for this specific blend were chosen from our best sites. The L'Ormarins vineyards with the decomposed granite supplied the richness and fullness to the wine. The Rooderust vineyards which has more clay and a slightly warmer climate, supplied the intense fruit aromas. Together these terroir produced a unique wine.

24 months in new French oak, bottled unfiltered and bottle-aged for 24 months.

Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in a refrigerated truck. In the cellar, the whole berries are manually double sorted and then gravity fed into fermenters. Each batch is cold soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature. Fermentation takes place naturally. The wines were aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak, bottled unfiltered and bottle aged for 24 months.
