2005 Prix Reserve Mélange
Why call it a mixture, a combination or a blend when it can be a melange? The French have a way of making simple words sound like romantic entreaties of love. And that is what we feel we are doing with our Prix Melange: entreating your senses to experience this beautiful wine!
Its nose is luscious and brooding and contemplative with aromas of violet, licorice, blackberry brambles, a hint of mint and beautifully balanced oak. On the palate this deep red is rich and intense with round soft tannins. The juicy succulent fruit is balanced with deep earth and soft oak and leaves you with a full and lingering flavor. Having aged to prefection this wine is mature and lovely.
