94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2012

(100% cabernet franc):  Good full red-ruby.  Knockout nose combines fresh red cherry with richer, riper aromas of raspberry jam, strawberry syrup, milk chocolate, vanilla and candied violet.  At once sappy and voluminous, with lovely sweetness and flesh to the red fruit flavors.  Very smooth, velvety tannins leave an impression of lingering creaminess on the extremely long finish, which features a seamless cherry liqueur-like quality.  A very ripe, almost candied style of Paleo, but it's a pretty irresistible wine that will offer plenty of early drinking appeal.
