Over A Barrel/ 2007-2020 A blend of Cab Sauv and Merlot, it exhibits a deep ox-blood color and a nose of perfume, violets and vanilla. On the palate one also detects chocolate, coffee, cherries and toasted oak. Softer than expected and the taste lingers.

Special Reserve 2004 - Wine Report 2009/ One of the "most exciting" wines of the year! About the Selection Process: Each contributor is asked to submit four to five wines for consideration for this section of the book, which meant approximately 150 wines. I then tasted the wines blind, grouped by variety or style, culling almost 40 per cent. Contributors also provided a tasting note, which is followed by my own comment.
