Clos Pegase:
Clos Pegase is a celebration of the ancient marriage of wine and art. The winery's very name alludes to the Greek myth which tells us that the winged horse, Pegasus, unleashed the sacred Spring of the Muses, bringing life to the vines and inspiration to the poets.

Nice amber colored edges. Amazing pure cassis, tar and dark cherry nose. After 30 minutes the palate shows a pure curranty-cab profile that is somewhat two dimensional, but very very pretty indeed. The fruits in attendance are curant, blackberry, dark chery, and black plums.There are some secondaries like tar, cedar and anise and a wonderful fine line of tannins. An acid level that s deftly in the background. Wow. A medium bodied expolsive cabernet that shows elegance, structure and breed.A 30 second finish beckons you back... Wish I had more.
