91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012

Opaque purple.  Dark berries, cherry pit and chocolate on the nose, with licorice and black cardamon nuances adding complexity.  Sappy, expansive blackcurrant and cherry flavors show very good depth, with a peppery quality providing lift.  Fine-grained tannins add grip to the sweet, subtly floral finish.  This suave wine drinks very well right now.

It is still harsh on the edges with gritty tannins that need to evolve more. Strong and packed with all the hallmarks of CA cab with a bit of Bordeaux styling. 3 star now but should evolve to more. I will wait until 2015 to try another.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
