Expert Reviews

89-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006

(52% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Good bright ruby. Blueberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by spicy oak. Chewy, lush and dense, but with a sappy quality giving shape to the fruit. Very tactile, solid wine with a saline quality suggesting energetic extraction. But this offers impressive mouth coverage and finishes broad and long, with nicely restrained sweetness. Wait until 2011.

Silky and Long Finish

by Buffa12673555
Aromas of Cherry and vanilla with floral overtone. Needs decanting now and really needs time-maybe 5 years to fully develop. The wine has a silky feel in the mouth and along lasting finish. Is top notch now but will age even better.
