Expert Reviews

91-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

(60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot; 32 hectoliters per hectare):  Deep, opaque ruby.  Rich aromas of blackberry, black cherry and minerals are lifted by a perfumed minty note.  Multilayered and vibrant, with compelling sweetness of black fruit cocktail, spicy vanilla and mineral flavors.  Finishes with very smooth tannins, a persistent violet note and an impression of weightlessness.  I love this wine's purity, but I don't know if my sample had any press wine in it.
