90-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
(15.5% alcohol; 83% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon and e% cabernet franc;) Inky violet-ruby. Spearmint and cola notes mingle with aromas of ripe black plum and fresher blackcurrant. Dense, bright and juicy, with flavors of creamy ripe black fruits, lead pencil and cocoa. Finishes long and pure, with a trace of alcohol and very assertive but smooth tannins. This will appeal more to those who appreciate very ripe, high-octane wines.
