2007 Pirouette Red Wine

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This wine is a very dark ruby, opaque and lovely in the glass.  The bouquet is dark black fruit, floral hints, black olives, and  pencil shavings.  The nose is wonderful and complex with the many varietal types showing through.  The mouth feel is full bodied with a lovely layered fruit beginning and middle.  The wine is well balanced with sweetness to acid and has a lovely tannin on the finish which is long and lasting.  This is a well-made higher alcohol wine but the heat does not take away from the general pleasure this wine provides.  At 5 years old now it could easily go 5 more years and get better and better.

Cab Sauv 56% , Merlot 25% , Cab franc 11% , Petite Verdot.6%, Malbec 2%
