Expert Reviews

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014

(15.2% alcohol; 94% cabernet sauvignon with 2% each merlot and cabernet franc and 1% each petit verdot and malbec):  Bright medium ruby.  Aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, herbs and dark chocolate.  Denser and deeper than the 2011 merlot without any loss of pliancy.  Still, the dark fruit flavors show a slightly intrusive menthol greenness and less easy sweetness.  Finishes with rather suave tannins.  This release features the highest percentage of cabernet sauvignon to date.
