Rich, dark and loaded with luscious black plum and mocha aromas. Judicioulsy applied oak wraps the package nicely. Full-bodied with a smoky finish. Terrific!

Reviews and Ratings

This wine is made primarily from fruit grown on the Black Sage Bench on 8-year-old vines, which are fertilized heavily with a cocktail of composts to fortify what is basically pure sand. Fermentations were conducted at medium high temperatures (25ºC) to allow a good compromise of tannic extraction and fruit preservation. All lots were pressed at dryness and aged in new through 3-year-old, thin-stave Chateau Ferre barrels, sourced for the most part from Bertranges forest.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
