2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

This wine opens with an intense perfume of ripe Oregon blackberries, fresh blueberries, violet and nag champa incense. A complex wine of many layers, it delivers additional nuances of lilac, allspice, marzipan, and rich black cherry upon the second swirl. The palate is equally dense and intense, presenting hints of dark chocolate, ginger and peat surrounding a vibrant dark cherry core. Succulent, expressive and enticing, this wine is only beginning to reveal itself now and will benefit from three to eight years of proper cellaring. - the winery

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

This wine opens with perfumed aromas of black cherry and raspberry, spicy plum and violets. On the palate, blueberry, plum, cassis and earthy notes converge around a fresh core of bright acidity and plush tannin lending this wine structure, vitality and grace. There is precision in the expression of fruit and an elegant yet ample succulent structure that progresses to a finish that is long and lasting with hints of blueberries, spiced cherries, exotic incense and fresh rose petals. This lovely wine is drinking well now but may also be enjoyed over the next five to eight years with proper cellaring. - the winery

Deep ruby red in color, the Premier Cuvee opens with lifted aromas of red berries, violets, vanilla and a hint of savory spice. Black cherry, currant, pomegranate and blueberry notes mingle on the palate with mulling spices, anise and clean earth. The wine is precocious and bright with layers of mineral, flint and spice surrounding a seductive black cherry core. There is balance and good concentration here; tannins are rich but restrained, revealing a wine with depth of flavor and clean lines. Elegant and focused, this wine is ready for enjoyment now, however may improve with proper cellaring over the next five to eight years.
