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.

Classic blackberry jam and chocolate nose, very perfumed mdash; violets, leather, cigarbox. Extremely ripe, concentrated, saturated black fruits, especially cassis, absolutely gorgeous, with great length and finesse. Wide open, full-bore fruit.

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.

Medium weight, with spicy black cherry, cedar and currant notes of modest depth and proportion. Finishes with mild tannins and hints of anise. Drink now through 2006.
