90pts James Suckling
Berry and cedar aromas follow through to a medium body with firm tannins and a savory finish. Just a hint of toffee at the end. Drink now.
90pts Wine Spectator
A rich red in a modern style, with an overtone of toasty smoke and a firm frame of tannins swathed in flavors of blackberry, blueberry and menthol. Fresh, spiced finish.
Very intense cherry red color with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth, it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
Pair with barbecue, vegetables, beef and pork, rice and pasta based dishes. Also goes well with cheese and hearty meals, such as chili, shepard's pie, and lasagna.
