Tasting Notes

Really dark, dense and chewy with thick black fruits, earth and cloves. The length is really impressive but this is a wine for those who like them dark, brooding and mysterious. 15.5 points

Reviews & Scores

(a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 5% cabernet franc) Ripe, complex aromas of dark raspberry, tobacco and woodsmoke, complicated by a leesy component. Suave, sweet and fine-grained; in a distinctly plush, gentle style, suggesting a rather soft extraction. Finishes with very smooth, horizontal tannins and subtle persistence. As suave as this is, there's no shortage of underlying power. 90-92 points
