Wine Spectator 91 points - Broad and generous, open-textured and inviting, with cherry, currant and red plum flavors that swirl enticingly around the fine-grained tannins and creamy oak on the finish. Drink now through 2018.-H.S. (Oct 19 2016)
The wine was characterized by smaller berry and cluster size, with intense flavors, good sugar development and high natural acidity. Slight spice, chocolate, and hints of coconut and black cherry aromas lead into a subtle and harmonious balance of oak and fruit on the palate. This supple wine trails into a slightly spiced cocoa finish.
