Intense ruby color. Aromatic and racy, dominated by cigar box aromas, Virginia tobacco and cherry stone.
Rich and concentrated on the palate, with intense mouth flavors and a long spicy finish.

Wine maker notes
Barton & Guestier has this year again well adapted its skillful winemaking techniques to the 1999 vintage
specifications. This consisted of pushing the extraction to the extreme on the Grenache. The Syrah gave
richness, flavors (spices, cherry) and structure. The wine has aged slowly for a period of nine months gaining
maturity. The result is a rich wine, intense in color, very aromatic with good structure.
This Rhône style pairs quite well with red meats, casseroles, grilled meats as well as hard cheeses like
Asiago or Reggiano.
