Information & Acclaim:
The Wine Advocate: "Toasty oak, Asian spices, earthy minerals, a hint of balsamic, and assorted black fruits are followed by a concentrated, structured, somewhat austere effort that should fill out with some extended cellaring. If that happens, my score will seem conservative."
Wine & Spirits: "A blend of mostly Cabernet and Merlot, this impressive wine is as dense as fig cake at the outset. Its black cherry scents and lavender notes give way to powerful oak-driven flavors, a brilliant beam of red fruit showing through after a day. This will reward the patient, especially when served with a marbled ribeye."
