Tasting Notes

Deep, brooding nose and a sense of underlying power. Dense brambly black fruits and a dark spicy and earthy quality with finely grained tannins and notable tension. A success. 16.5 points

Reviews & Scores

(a blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot, 5% cabernet franc, 3% petit verdot and 2% malbec) Good deep ruby-red. Spicy black fruits, game, leather and dark chocolate on the nose. Big, rich, chocolatey and deep, but quite primary, with a slightly bitter, raw character at this point. A bit chunky but not heavy (the alcohol is a moderate 12.8%), as there's no shortage of juicy acidity. Finishes with notes of chocolate, game, tar and violet. 88-90 points
