Tasting Notes
& Comments

N/ Round. Warm Graham crackers. Massive black fruits. Stewed black pepper. River stones. Cedar. Confectionery. Wonderful.

T/ Surprisingly clean and crisp given the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Mellow, but full, spices. Pepper soaked plums and black fruits. Chocolate and coffee. Massive minerality for a Syrah.

Elegant structure and balance.

Wonderful wine crafting.

Night two notes

Nose remained superb and the Graham crackers became even more pronounced, with some sawdust and cut wood as well.

Taste and mouthfeel lost some angularity and structure, but still very drinkable. Fruits remain massive and ripe. Tobacco flavors increased nicely.

Production Technique: Traditional fermentation of the grapes on the skins before blending is then followed by four months of aging in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
Description: Color: Brilliant ruby-red.
Bouquet: Fruity, chocolate, red plums and vanilla.
Taste: Soft tannins, medium body, harmonic and smooth finish.
Alcohol Content: 13%
Total Acidity: 5.01g/l

Ruby-like, bright in color. Fruit forward with red plum and varietal characteristics. Medium dry, medium body and harmonious with a good finish This wine marries two of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon offers character, complexity and longevity, while Merlot adds softer tannins and elegance. Patterned after the same classic blend that distinguishes many fine chateaux of Bordeaux, this superb red wine complements the heartiest foods, especially red meats, barbeque, savory pasta dishes, and pizza. - 01/19/2009

Tasting Notes
& Comments

Deep red in color, this wine offers intense aromas of licorice, cocoa, and spice. This wine is rich and complex with soft tannins.

Le Grand Noir (Black Sheep)
From a country renowned for its wine-making tradition, Le Grand Noir wines offer untraditional blends from traditional French varietals. With the black sheep on the label, Le Grand Noir captures the off-the-beaten-path spirit of these French wines. The results are wines that are as unconventional as France is conventionally wine country. - 12/27/2008
