92pts James Suckling

Rich, malbec-based red with lots of crushed-berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A big wine with verve! A blend of 54% malbec, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 16% petit verdot and 5% merlot. Drink or hold.

91pts Decanter

Damson and sloe aromas over a palate of almost brandied ripe fruits with lovely skin tannins.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

This combines 54% Malbec with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot for a forceful red of powerful concentration. Sweet oak and burly black fruit combine around a spicy, meaty midpalate, with firm tannins extending on the finish.

Winemaker Notes

Rich, yet fresh and bright, this wine is incredibly enchanting. The nose features intense aromas of dark brambly fruit and layers of cinnamon, violet and vanilla. Balanced and supple on the palate, the finish is mouth-wateringly smooth.

Winery Chef Chris Kennedy enjoys Dragon‘s Tooth with slow cooked peppers and tomatoes for the deep richness that complements this wine perfectly. He suggests pairing with leaner cuts of beef like flank or skirt steak.
