Description Technical Notes PDF Fact Sheet
A special wine from a special vintage. After two years of making us work, mother nature made our lives easy. Welcome to intense aromas of baking spice, mocha and cassis, luring you in to a melting core of black fruits. With intoxicating bitters and mouthwatering minerality, the wine's acidity gives a sense of motion--flavors move across the palate like a movie on a screen. The time-release finish brings a pleasing grip of mingling mouthwatering flavors and truly does not quit. Blended early in 2014, aged 26 months in barrel. Did I mention the endless finish? Slip into this little black dress and the evening suddenly feels elegant.

14.4% alcohol, deep, intense and ripe without fat. Only 322 cases bottled, less than half the wine available for blending. (Hint: the Bourriquot got the rest.)

JAN2021: Plummy, supported by tactile tannins the first 30 minutes open. Hello powdery chewy tannins! Then the exploding midpalate and great finish. Very smooth by one hour, heavier body. A rich, dark, engaging wine.
