Le Désir

2007

Vintage

A lovely season for all of California, 2007 began with a mild winter with below normal rainfall and was followed by a dry spring. These conditions led to an early budbreak. Very consistent temperatures and weather throughout the growing season resulted in a fruit set of perfect, even grape clusters. Furthermore, berries were smaller this year, which means a greater skin to juice ratio and thus a big concentration of flavors. Harvest took place September 4th through September 27th.
– Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Notes

This wine is concentrated black fruits in a glass; it is very spiced, dense, complex and long with discreet oak notes. The bouquet and the palate will continue to develop over the next several years.

It boasts a deep blue/ purple color as well as notes of acacia flowers, graphite, licorice, blackberries, blueberries and a hint of burning embers/ charcoal, superb intensity and purity and abundant tannin in the finish. This massive wine needs 5-6 more years of bottle age, and is meant for 35-40 years of cellaring.
