Clos Pegase:
Clos Pegase is a celebration of the ancient marriage of wine and art.

This wine boasts ripe, dark berry aromas and flavors while the Sangiovese provides a firm backbone and substantial body, the Merlot brings a lucious mouthfeel and lingering finish.

"Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Deep and well-extracted red cherry fruit scents with a soupçon of roasted bread and a veneer of crème brûlée richness added in for good measure

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Deep and well-extracted red cherry fruit scents with a soupçon of roasted bread and a veneer of crème brûlée richness added in for good measure, this wine is attractive from the outset. Supple to start on the palate with a plush early texture, it firms up towards the back and makes good use of late-arriving tightness for a bit of grip and up to a half decade of ageworthiness. It can be tried at any point but will soften with rest.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Tightly built, this wine maintains the tension of its structure as it builds in complexity with air. When first opened it show intensity through potent, clay-mineral tannin and a floral perfume. If black rose could be a fruit flavor, this Merlot has it, and it keeps pumping that flavor through a lasting finish. By the next day, the tight structure is still there, though the wine has grown more expansive, its black flavor targeting roast suckling pig or something equally fat and round.

Captures in style the personality of the vintage. Wines from this harvest are typically ripe, robust and very forward with lots of showy fruit flavors and soft, friendly tannins. Clos Pegase is one of the first producers of Carneros Merlot and this wine amply demonstrates the advantages of growing Merlot in a cooler climate, where shallow soils and long ldquo;hang-timerdquo; produce wines of great depth and balance.

Captures in style the personality of the vintage mdash; ripe, robust and very forward with lots of showy fruit flavors and soft, friendly tannins. Itrsquo;s 100% estate grown, primarily from Mitsukorsquo;s Vineyard in Carneros, but blended with a small percentage sourced from their Home Ranch in Calistoga. It is 98% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 20 months in French oak, then bottled unfiltered to retain all of its flavor.
