About

96

"A rich and very dense red with blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate character. Full body, fine tannins. Silky finish. A blend of 75% cabernet franc, 20% malbec and 5% syrah. Drink now or hold."

90 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Full dark red. Cabernet-dominated aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and herbs, lifted by a violet topnote. Surprisingly juicy and light on its feet; slightly leafy but possesses plenty of dark berry and black cherry fruit. Classic Cabernet texture and definition here. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins, a hint of licorice and no hard edges."
