Tasting Notes

Tasted last December at my tasting club. It was one of 10 wines I showed to 10 guests. It was voted clear winner of best wine of the evening (we included Chateau Magdelaine, Domaine Lafran Veyrolles and other distinguished wines incluing Daumas Gassac.) Wine had wonderful depth and balance. Lovely ripe dense fruit with just hint of oak. My wife and I have chosen this wine for our silver wedding party in December. Liz and Mike Berry kindly sold us some.
