Wine tasting notes

Deep ruby red with hints of violet. The aromas are classically Cabernet, with blackberry and blackcurrants, hints of dry leaves and spice. Well-structured, with medium body and a long and mineral finish, the bottle will reward further ageing or being decanted before pouring.

Expert Reviews

Wine Spectator (2015)87 pts

A supple red, with dark fruit and spice flavors that are balanced and fresh-tasting. Cocoa accents show on the finish.

Basic aromas of black fruit and a dusting of oaky cinnamon lead to a chunky palate with tannins that grab. Saucy plum and oak flavors remain woody on a finish that's rubbery and raw.
