93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Good bright ruby. Black fruits, licorice, menthol and a mineral note on the complex nose. A real fruit bomb in the mouth, with a compellingly lush, layered texture and superb sweetness countered by harmonious acidity. The black cherry and dark chocolate flavors are lifted by a suggestion of graphite minerality on the back half, which features ripe, broad, building tannins and lovely purity and length. The 21% petit verdot component contributes body and structure to the blend, says assistant winemaker Jeff Owens. A beauty.
