92 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013

(includes a good bit of Adrianna Vineyard fruit, plus some densely planted--meter-by-meter--cabernet sauvignon and a bit of cabernet franc):  Dark red.  Perfumed aromas of currant, violet, licorice and graphite, plus a whiff of chorizo.  Sweet, fine-grained and quite firm; in a very suave, elegant style.  Finishes with excellent breadth, a fine coating of dusty tannins and terrific persistence.
