Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

(100% cabernet sauvignon): Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas and flavors of black raspberry, dark chocolate and licorice. Supple, sweet and concentrated, but with a solid spine of suave tannins giving shape to the wine. The long, chocolatey aftertaste underscores the impression of sweetness. Really lush cabernet here.

Wine Spectator | 94

A classy, stylish wine, smooth and creamy, delivering a tasty mix of red berry, raspberry, currant and mocha, with touches of cedar, forest floor and roasted herb. Ends with fleshy, fine-grained tannins that give the flavors just enough traction.

Tightly wound. Too young, should have decanted for an hour or so. Velvety with black cherry finish
