WINEMAKER’S NOTES

“Aromas of fig, ripe raspberry, and dark cherry. Graphite notes. Pomegranate covered with dark chocolate layer this silky smooth wine.  Balanced and richly textured. The depth of flavor and ripe, refined tannins are extraordinary.”

INTERNATIONAL WINE REVIEW

"Despite the cool vintage, the 2011 Paratus reveals both high acidity and excellent ripeness. It shows lovely black and red fruit aromas with hints of a wild character and minerals. On the palate it shows dry herbs, bay leaf, soft round tannins and a persistent finish. This wine is drinking beautifully now. 94 points."
