93pts James Suckling
Gorgeous nose of crushed berries and spices with just a hint of milk chocolate. Full body, with lovely ripe fruit and a round and caressing textured finish. Drink or hold. (4/11)
91pts Wine Spectator
A dark, muscular style, with cocoa powder and coffee up front, followed by dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit flavors. A strong toasty edge holds sway on the finish. The dense fruit will allow this to cellar. (3/13)
With a medicinal hint, this is a wine that is all potential. At the moment, it is firm, dry and darkly tannic. The weight gives the promise, offering rich fruitiness in the future. Drink this impressive, concentrated wine from 2016.
Varietal: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc
