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.

This wine is dark and inky in color. A powerhouse with quaffable aromatics of blackberries, pie crust, baking spices, and exotic sandalwood. Time in the glass reveals subtle aromas of walnut shell, red currants, bay leaf, and violets. On the palate, there is a richness of black fruit, spice, herbs and creamy espresso at the finish. The acidity provides a wonderful freshness and the tannin gives the wine a silky backbone. Very enjoyable now, this wine will age for a decade or more in your cellar.
