Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Blackberry and cassis aromas blend seamlessly with varietal scents of herbs and leaves. This Cab Franc feels crisp yet flush, with laudable structure and vital acidity. Flavors of leafy, spicy berry and plum finish with peppery notes, a jolt of salinity and heft. (Nov 2013)
This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon; a highly colored, intensely fragrant and firmly structured wine with the ripeness and breadth of the new world and the restraint of old world sensibility.
It opens up with Cassis, licorice, herbs, black pepper and pain grille. The wine feels voluminous and weighty on the palate, with high-toned tactile fruit, raspberry, chocolate and hints of mocha; with lush tannins in full dialog with the elegant acid backbone and oak aromatics.
