Expert Reviews

87-89 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2013

Deep ruby.  Subdued aromas of smoky blackberry and violet, along with a slightly raw herbal/peppery component.  Then supple and round in the mouth, but with a diffuse quality to the dark berry and chocolate flavors.  A wine of modest complexity, finishing with only average length and with slightly bitter tannins.
