Les Charmes de Kirwan 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Charmes de Kirwan, the second estate wine of Chateau Kirwan, was introduced in 1993. The younger sibling of the wines of Château Kirwan, Charmes de Kirwan generally comes from the harvest of the vineyard's younger vines, but it receives the same attention as the great growth. Vinification is in stainless steel tanks with temperature control and ageing is 16 months in oak barrels from the France's Allier - 15% are new barrels.

This is Kirwan's second label, and it's just as appetizing as the first! You can't ask for a more generous palate than this, and it's no surprise that this Margaux comes from a formidable vintage like 2005. The fruit is berry-driven, the tannins assertive but accessible, and the spices from the oak aging just right.
