The Rocheux cuvee fruit comes from the rocky west side of the vineyard. The 2005 Le Cadeau Rocheux opens with bold aromas of mixed berriesboysenberry, marionberry, raspberryand light scents of coffee and earth. On the palate, the wine is balanced, focused, and features bright acids and soft tannins. The flavors include red and black cherries, Asian spices, and the trademark earthiness from our vineyard site. The 05 Rocheux finishes with a hint of vanilla and some lingering oak which will fully integrate in the months ahead.
