90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2008
($70) Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, spicecake and bitter chocolate, with a strong component of sweet, nutty oak. Lush, full and sweet, with black fruit, dark chocolate and graphite flavors dominating. Finishes with big, broad, mouthdusting tannins that coat the front teeth. There's no reason not to enjoy this cabernet now but it should evolve nicely for five or six years.
