92 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2014

Bright ruby-red.  Superripe aromas of blackberry, black cherry and spicecake show an almost porty quality.  Rich, sweet, layered and deep; extremely dense but not at all edgy or dry.  With its kirsch-like porty ripeness, this boasts compelling sweetness.  Can't quite match the Catena Alta cabernet for sheer structure but the finish is broad and long, with classy tannins.
