WS 95 Pts - #3 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012 - According to Wine Spectator - Pepper, clove and plum flavors weave through dense dark cherry and roasted plum fruit, melding together smoothly on the complex and expansive finish. A big wine with depth and harmony. Best from 2013 through 2020.
Tasting Notes - Notes of cherries, plus, chocolate, cedar, spice and scorched earth. Very seductive on the nose. Dense plums explode onto the palate with spice, subtle chocolate and tar. The fine tannin backbone rolls on and on from the mid palate, surrounding by fresh juiciness, dark fruit and subtle oak. Rated 90+
