  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Cassis, black raspberry and clove on the nose. Supple, enticing dark berry flavors offer lovely sweetness. Dense and fat, with more extract to buffers its firm tannic structure. Finishes with a refreshing bitter edge. Nicely balanced, ripe cab franc.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Lots of everything--rich, extracted earthy currant, mineral, mocha, herb, coffee and tobacco flavors accented by coconut-scented oak. Finishes with firm wall of tannins.

    Orange in color. Brick in color. Prune on the nose...really not that much there. Black currant (cassis), Cinnamon, Black Pepper in the mouth. Light/Medium bodied. Smooth texture. Medium, thin, but pleasant finish. Maybe 14.4% alcohol is a bit much for aging well? A nice effort.
