International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

Good bright red-ruby. Enticing, nuanced aromas of black cherry, licorice, graphite and flowers, along with a whiff of tar. Then smooth and supple but high-pitched on the palate, with dark fruit flavors complicated by menthol and leather. Finishes with fairly sweet tannins for a second wine. This features 80% Eisele Vineyard fruit, including 20% petit verdot

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 192

There are 400 cases of the 2008 Altagracia, which includes a lot of Petit Verdot (20%) in the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. The year's spring frosts resulted in a smaller crop than usual resulting in a denser, richer but at the same time more texturally interesting and seductive style of wine. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lots of blue, red and black fruits as well as good minerality, purity and depth.
