Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Fermented in large barrels to preserve the fruit, this is a dense wine, full of the ripe red-berry and black-plum flavor that's layered with mint and new wood notes. Juicy, rich and concentrated, this is worth aging for at least five years." -Roger Voss (9/1/2012)
