90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010
($45; 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 6% malbec and 4% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Plum, menthol, herbs and exotic spices on the nose, with a strong element of chocolatey, nutty oak. Silky on entry, then thick, sweet and full without coming across as heavy. Distinctly broader and lusher in the mouth-not to mention sweeter-than the two cabernet releases from this winery. The currant, plum and chocolate flavors are complicated by a light herbal element. The tannins reach the front teeth on the persistent, firmly structured finish.
