Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Good dark red.  Aromas of cassis, menthol, spices, herbs and mocha went into a shell in the glass.  Sweet raspberry, currant, tobacco and spice flavors are supple and pliant in spite of the wine's firm acidity and high percentage of cabernet sauvignon.  This juicy, approachable wine offers nicely ripe tannins and excellent length.
