2005 2005 Pirouette
- Winemaker Philippe Melka
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Bordeaux Blend
This is substantial, textural, and complex. The toasty new oak flavors are more than matched by rich layers of berries, cassis and black cherries. It would show quite well against California Meritage-style wines costing twice as much.
Saturated purple in color, it offers aromas of wood smoke, earth notes, spice box, plum, black currant, and blueberry.
