Pure rich and concentrated this bold graceful wine offers a deep core of earthy currant blackberry and plum with hints of herb mocha and black licorice giving it uncommon complexity and depth. Ends with firm tannins and a long persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2017. 10300 cases made. -JL

Silky layered and lush with a seamless texture to the full-bodied flavors of plum currant and lead-pencil minerality. Has plenty of plump mid-palate fruit to support the big but thoroughly ripe tannins which reach the front teeth. Mostly from To-Kalon fruit the rest from nearby vines also in Oakville. Winemaker Janssens compared this wine to the 1995. This is sweet and approachable whereas the 2005 version was young and aggressive at the same stage.
