93 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2013

(43% cabernet sauvignon, 32% cabernet franc, 14% petit verdot and 11% merlot; 80% new French oak):  Inky purple.  A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet displays dark berry preserves, olive, fresh violet and a smoky touch of black pepper.  Smells eerily like syrah.  Spicy and penetrating, with excellent depth to its sweet blackberry, blueberry and floral pastille flavors.  Juicy acidity provides lift and spine as well as vivacity to a strikingly long, sweet, spice-tinged finish.
