This wine combines remarkable freshness with elegant richness so that even after it's been open for several days the flavors are still evolving the fruit still brisk as an autumn breeze. It needs that time for the blunt chalkiness of the structure to mellow for the cool apple and pear flavors to develop and lengthen. Built to age this is an exceptional vintage of L'Ermitage.

Drink now through 2013... Sleek and complex with lovely aromas of green apple loam and warm cinnamon rolls.

L'Ermitage debuted with the 1989 vintage.
