Ratings & Reviews

90 & Best Values - Wine Spectator Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Ripe and expressive, supple and generous, with dark berry, black cherry, licorice and spice flavors, gliding into the long, harmonious and toasty finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2021. 40,000 cases made." - HS (Mar 31, 2016)

Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Half of this wine is Merlot, with the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Blueberry, coffee and vanilla aromas are followed by sultry plum flavors speckled with barrel accents before a mocha-flavored finish." - Sean P. Sullivan (3/1/2016)
