Steve Tanzer 91 points - This rich red sports ample layers of toasty oak, spice and roasted coffee notes to the dark plum and fig paste fruit, as firm tannins chime in on the long, dark finish. Needs short-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2016.—N.W.

"Aromas of blueberry, black raspberry and sexy oak convey an almost porty ripeness. Then sweet and juicy in the mouth, with surprising definition and lift to the powerful dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. This very tactile, long wine finishes with building chocolatey tannins and captivating high tones." Steve Tanzer International Wine Cellar 91 points
