Tasting notes

Plump black stone fruits combine with intense aromas of black currant and blackberry. These dark fruits are prévalent mouth flavors along with rich coffee, mocha, vanilla and tobacco. An elegantly structured wine with great depth and a generous finish.

Vinification and aging

Crop thinning in early summer following veraison reduced yields to less than two tons per acre. Following harvest, the lots were individually fermented in stainless steel tanks on their skins at 85° F for up to 17 days. The lots were individually aged for 19 months in 70% new and 30% oneyear-old oak barrels, primarily from the Alliers and Nevers forests of France, and were gently racked with gravity every three months. The finest lots of the vintage were selected for the final blend. The wine was bottled, unfined in July 1999, and cellar aged for 13 months prior to release. 14% alcohol, total acidity .57 g/100ml, pH 3.61.
