Sweet Jolly Rancher toned fruit greets the nose followed by a light touch of barrel tones and dusty, almost granitic soil notes. rich and soft on entry with integrated yet almost lemony acids supporting fresh, slightly spicy blackberry fruit. The texture here is quite lush with lots of dark earth tones and a hint of brownie on the finish, which tightens up considerably as the ripe tannins slowly focus the clear black fruit tones. A lovely wine that will benefit from 2-4 years in the cellar. 92pts

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were picked from October 11th to October 24th and fermented by indigenous yeast in small fermentors. They were punched down three times daily, pressed very gently, and racked to a variety of French oak barrels: 19.05% new, 38.10% 1 year old, and 23.81% 2 years old, and the rest neutral. The barrels were racked in April, then again in August when the blend was put together before returning to barrels for another 11 months.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Deux Verres’ aroma is sweet and jammy with ripe dark cherries and floral notes of roses, followed by red cherry/berry fruit - all on a very light earthy background. The flavors explode with richness and sweetness, displaying layers of dark cherries, dark berries, rich concentration, earth, light spiciness and a light oak note. The mouth-feel is incredibly satisfying, rich and sweet; the texture is round and soft. The finish is long, rich, sweet and spicy.
