International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Bright red-ruby. Cassis, licorice, graphite, peppery herbs and tobacco leaf on the nose, plus a whiff of chocolate mint. Classic youthfully medicinal cabernet; densely packed and pliant, with a light touch to the flavors of cassis, blueberry, menthol and graphite. Suave, energetic wine with easygoing tannins and a hint of youthful bitterness that's nicely supported by the wine's texture and sweetness.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2014
