Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

Ruby-red. Black cherry, currant, loam, tobacco and charry oak on the nose; suggests a deep sweetness. Big, rich, fat and deep; not yet particularly complex but backward and powerfully structured. A very young wine that finishes with ripe tannins and sneaky length.

Wine Advocate | 90

A classic wine, this dark ruby/purple-colored offering reveals a lead pencil, black currant, and vanillin-scented nose that could easily pass for a classy Medoc. It displays good richness and purity on the entry, medium to full body, outstanding concentration, and exceptional harmony. This is a beauty.

Wine Spectator | 91

A dense and backward style, filled with complex currant and black cherry flavors with cedar, leather and spicy nuances, this red blend opens to reveal rich, seamless fruit flavors, picking up pretty oak shadings and turning complex and elegant on the finish. Contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 1,060 cases made.

This is at its peak. The predominant olive tapenade has given way to ripe dark berry and currant fruit. Notes of earth, leather and the aforementioned olive add to the complexity. The tannins are perfectly integrated to give this a round, supple mouthfeel. This wine glides across the palate and rewards with a deliciously lingering finish.
