Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This wine over-delivers a mouthful of juicy quality vis-a-vis price, combining Cab with smaller dabs of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Savory blackberry and cassis lift the fruitiness, seasoned in savory tones of black tea and cranberry that give it an edge. Fleshy and smooth, it’s a good wine to stock up on.  (Dec 2015)

The 2012 vintage is a true standout. The even ripening conditions and near perfect sugar acid balance in the grapes was a winemaker's dream. The Bordeaux varietals flourished unlike any vintage in recent memory. This impeccable wine displays wonderful aromatics of cherry, black currant and black olive notes. Additional airing reveals dried floral, allspice and hints of nutmeg and juniper. The palate is full-bodied and fleshy with excellent tannin and structure. The wine is silky and smooth with superb balance - something we work tirelessly to achieve. The finish lingers on showing great texture and charm.
