Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Brilliant dark cassis color; aromas of ripe cherry, dried herbs, savory spices and cocoa; round and weighty, with well-integrated stone fruit and sweet oak flavors, well-framed by lively tannins and balanced acidity, with a mannerly but youthful finish.
Vineyard Notes
Until the very end, 2002 was a mild season with few hot spells, and maturation was slow. It started icily, with frost in April and rains in May. After veraison, warm days and cool nights accelerated ripening, and by September the real heat kicked in, leading to a compressed harvest. Intense flavors and excellent balance were the happy result of the cool summer, and richness the outcome of warm picking weather.
Winemaker Notes
Average Brix at harvest was 26.7°; moderate yields of 4.1 tons per acre translated into concentrated fermentation lots; 18 days maceration on skins; aged 19 months in chateau­style barrels, 69 percent new, 97 percent French oak.
