Belle Cousine, Hyde Vineyard, Napa Valley – 2009
A pure and intense nose displays fresh blueberry, spices and crushed stone aromas. The minerality is striking in harmony with soft, elegant tannins. On the palate, the wine is juxtaposed with a restrained power typical of Hyde Vineyard Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Red and blue fruit are carried by freshness to a long, delicate finale. A perfect table addition, it will reward for 15 to 20 years to come.
