WS 90 Vinous 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - A pure, sanguine-edged style, with lovely red currant, raspberry and cherry fruit, laced with singed vanilla and cedar notes. The long, fine-grained finish shows latent grip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2021.
According to Stephen Tanzer - Ruby-red. Medicinal black cherry, currant, licorice and wild herbs on the nose; in a distinctly inky style but leavened by sweet oak. Surprisingly sweet and plush in the mouth, with dark frut and licorice flavors nicely supported by sound acidity. Broad, dusty tannins spread out to saturate the entire mouth. A large-scaled, rather powerful, even slightly rough wine to drink now or to age. 14% ABV.
