Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012

(60% new oak; includes 2% petit verdot; a blend from several vineyard blocks featuring a higher percentage of rocky soil):  Medium ruby.  Blackberry, minerals, bitter chocolate, menthol and a crushed rock note on the nose.  Lush, broad and dry, with currant and black cherry fruit dominating.  Finishes quite suave, with fine but serious tannins and very good length.
