Elegant Burgundy style with a complex palate. Over 3/4 of this vintage comes from the Napa side of Carneros and the remaining is sourced from the Sonoma side. Clones from the vineyard include Dijon 777, Pommard and Martini. Balanced wood maturation in French oak. Aromas and flavours of red fruit, pomegranate, young cherry and strawberry with a hint of spice. Notes of damp earth, some truffles.
Serve with poached salmon, poultry or lamb. Or go for grilled vegatables or fine Italian dishes with tomato sauce.
