Winemaker's Notes:

"A *top-notch effort* from this estate, the 2011 exhibits an exotic perfume of lead pencil shavings, white chocolate, raspberry jam and red as well as black currants. Loads of fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and velvety tannin suggest this beauty will drink well for 15+ years. It is *one of the stars of the appellation in this vintage. Bravo!*" Robert Parker Wine Advocate (91-93 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
