The deep red clay soils in this vineyard produce fruit which is very savory, textured and rich. Fermentation with Viognier gives it an extra dimension - a satin-like texture and a glorious perfume.

Wine AdvocateA magnificent effort, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 Descendant offers gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberries, raspberries, licorice, acacia flowers, and the added notes of honeysuckle and apricots from the Viognier. Full-bodied and opulently textured, with good tannin, structure, purity, and a broad, expansive finish that lasts nearly a minute, it needs 1-2 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15+.

Wine SpectatorTremendously aromatic, with spicy, leafy, floral and gamy character wrapping around a core of dark, brooding fruit, turning leaner and less generous in the mouth, finishing with a nice mineral touch. There's a lot going on, but it never quite breaks out-maybe with cellaring? Shiraz with 8 percent Viognier. Best after 2007. 700 cases made.
