Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The 2010 Saffredi (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) delivers gorgeous intensity and broad aromas of black berry, leather, crushed granite and lingering smoke. It's a masterpiece on all happy fronts. The textural elegance is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.Author: Monica Larner
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Black cherry and licorice flavors hold the center, with accents of vanilla, clove, cedar and wood resin. This is concentrated and backed by stiff tannins, leaving a firm finish for now. Needs time. Best from 2016 through 2029. 1,875 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
