WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection! - "Hard tannins and a brooding toughness mask the fruit on this wine, hiding the black cherry and currant under a cloak of dry astringency. However, it seems to have all the pieces in place to age gracefully. Should be fine by 2018–2020."
Tasting Notes - "Perfumed with aromas of ripe berries, this wine has sweet flavors of chocolate and spice wrapped around a rich core of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The intensity of flavors as well as the layering mouth feel have developed into an impressive structure. This wine is juicy and smooth with a sweet core of tannins that deliver the fruit through a nice lengthy finish." 14.7% ABV.
