[Cafe Loup] Decanted 30 mins drank over a 3 hours. Concentrated fruit. Blueberries, blackberries, sweet, oak, tannics. Very good but will wait on the next one or at least decant for longer.

Winemaker's Notes:

Like so many things of great beauty, our 2002 Merlot lots were shy in their infancy, evolving slowly before strutting their stuff and blowing us away with their power and grace. Now? Wow! As a finished wine, this cuvee reveals thoroughly ripe blackberry aromas and flavors with a seductively rich mid palate. Tronçais oak cooperage contributes a balanced oak profile reminiscent of roasted espresso beans. 100% Merlot, our 2002 Merlot is blended from twelve individually vinified lots culled from vineyard blocks spanning our mountaintop estate, and consequently, the county line
