Expert reviews

Jamie Goode (2007) - 88 pts

"A blend of Merlot and Malbec. The juice is cleaned up and then undergoes a long, cool fermentation. Very deep pink, this has a sweet, intense strawberry fruit nose. Really seductive. The palate is rich and intense with strawberries and cream character, as well as nice acid freshness."


Bob Campbell MW (2010) - 85 pts

4 Stars -"Attractive wine in a style that is typical of this successful label with plenty of weight and a silken texture. Slightly more austere and drying than I remember. A wine that reminds me a little of southern French examples with perhaps a little more fruit."
