Chapter 9 is designed to out-perform Bordeaux’s ripest vintages. French consultant Claude Gros designed our unique low-yield growing style for power and grace unlike anything before. Fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon accented by the subtle minerality of Syrah enhances the brambly aromatics in this sophisticated blend. Flavors of dark berries, espresso, and licorice. Smooth on the palate, the texture shows off concentrated fruit and abundant ripe tannins that round out this terroir filled tour de force. Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points, Wine Spectator 93 Points.
