Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2010

($20; includes 17% cabernet sauvignon and 7% cabernet franc) Good ruby-red. Expressive aromas of plum, currant, smoke, chocolate and minerals. Juicy, intense and fresh, with solid structure for a merlot-based wine. In fact, this is a bit bound-up today and in need of 6 to 12 months of patience. Finishes with broad tannins and good backbone.
