2014 2014 Pirouette
- Winemaker Philippe Melka
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Bordeaux Blend
This inky colored beauty gives up tons of graphite, toasted spice, dried herbs and chocolately dark fruit, full-bodied richness, building ripe tannins and a great finish. It's another killer wine from this estate, and possibly the best to date.
Clean aromas and flavors of cassis, raspberry, licorice and milk chocolate. Fat, velvety and sweet but also conveys an impression of youthful energy and a medicinal reserve. This very harmonious blend finishes with a serious dose of broad, dusty tannins and palate-saturating length. Very sexy use of oak here.
