Tasting Notes:
tasted: August 17, 2008 , from a member
90 points "Finish: persistent; Powerful Merlot, rich with flavor and good solid body. Perhaps not a lot of complexity (which would be a surprise to find at this price point), but otherwise a very satisfying wine."

"WINEMAKER STEPHEN TEBB'S TASTING NOTES: The color of this wine is intense—deep ruby purple. Aromas of ripe plums, smoky berry fruits and spice. Juicy red currant flavors on the entry, followed with rich, red cherry, black cherry and blackberry flavors extending to the mid-palate. A long finish with spicy oak and velvety fruit. Soft, lush and colorful! CLOS LACHANCE'S FOOD PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: Braised Veal with Mushrooms and Root Vegetables, Grilled Pork with Roasted Beets, Dark Chocolate Torte. "
