90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2013
(14.5% alcohol; 3.9 pH; includes 2% each merlot and syrah and 1% malbec; aged in 31% new French oak; only 60% of this wine went through malolactic fermentation): Good dark red. Musky currant, licorice, cedar, sage and a whiff of chocolatey reduction on the nose. Fairly smooth, pliant and deep, boasting good richness to its redcurrant, herb and milk chocolate flavors. Plenty of sexy oak here but it's supported by ripe fruit. Finishes with suave, edge-free tannins and lovely lingering sweetness.
