90pts James Suckling
Aromas of dried wood and red berries here with eucalyptus and red plums. The palate has a soft, approachable and creamy feel with sweet red-plum flavors. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and zinfandel.
Rich, luxurious and complex, this wine begins with alluring aromas of ripe cherry, red currant, cranberry and blueberry, along with sophisticated notes of sandalwood, clove, anise and black tea. On the palate, smooth, silky tannins underscore the lush black cherry and currant flavors, with hints of chocolate, spice and cracked pepper adding depth and nuance to the long, flowing finish.
Blend: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot, 12% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah, 8% Syrah, 6% Tempranillo, 3% Merlot
