91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
(15% alcohol; 57% cabernet sauvignon, 14% merlot, 13% malbec, 11% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot): Good deep red-ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and pepper. Silky and seamless in the mouth, offering impressively concentrated black fruit, spice, licorice and mineral flavors framed by harmonious acidity. This wine's three grams per liter of residual sugar are virtually erased on the firm-edged finish. A slight oaky bitterness in conjunction with the wine's high alcohol kept my score down.
