92pts James Suckling
This is a cool style now with tobacco, brambleberry and stone character. Floral. Full body, firm tannins and a bright, savory character. Pine nut. Meat and chocolate undertones. 47% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot, 21% cabernet franc, 4% petit verdot and 3% malbec. Drink or hold.
This wine is beautiful—it is quietly stunning. The nose is indefinably complex, almost ethereal, of roses, spices, leather, and earth. On the palate, the wine is firm yet satin smooth, and the finish just doesn't stop. The wine flows beautifully across your palate—from beginning to middle and end—it is one continuous experience.
