2009 2009 Pirouette
- Winemaker Philippe Melka
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Bordeaux Blend
Cellar Selection. Refined and elegant, it is precisely structured, with a firm herbal attack and a perfect blend of berry and cassis flavors. It's dense, deep and compact, suggesting long aging ahead.
Deep, bright medium ruby. Ripe, inviting aromas of cassis, black raspberry, blackberry and black licorice. Large-scaled, sweet and rich; wonderfully glossy in the mouth, with concentrated dark fruit flavors complemented by a strong element of sweet oak. This big boy finished with lovely lingering perfume, excellent length and terrific tannic grip.
