[92 James Suckling] I like the intensity of licorice, tar and graphite on the nose, not to mention the blackberry character. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Racy. Drink in 2017.
Winery's Notes: Deep ruby in color with intense and intriguing layers of juicy berries and dark plum, toasty oak notes, and spicy hints of sweet bay leaf and anise. Vibrant berry and dark chocolate flavors blend with black peppercorn and graphite to create a complex and full palate. The rich, velvety structure delivers a smooth and seamless finish of cassis, blackberry pie, and rosemary. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Syrah
