91(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2014

(from 35-year-old vines; blended with 8% cabernet sauvignon; aged in 80% new French oak):  Bright ruby-red.  Sexy aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, violet, mocha and nutty oak.  Suaver and sweeter than the Signature cabernet, with juicy, fruit-driven black plum, blackberry and violet flavors framed by harmonious acidity.  Boasts excellent precision and inner-mouth tension for a wine in this price range.  Finishes with a firm tannic spine, sneaky length and a hint of minty lift.  This is 14.5% alcohol but I never would have guessed.
