90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2009
($25; 87% cabernet sauvignon and 13% carmenere) Deep red. Dried redcurrant and cherry aromas are complemented by tobacco and cocoa powder. Tangy, finely etched red berry flavors are carrying no fat and become sweeter with air. Fresh red berry and cherry qualities linger nicely on the long, alluringly sappy finish. I really like this wine's finesse and vibrancy.
