Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Chocolate, plum and mocha make for an inviting entry to this wine. Cedar and gun flint season a smooth wall of youthful, polished tannin and integrated oak, with a lengthy finish.
Fresh floral and grapey-earthy scents lead to a tight, structured band of Cabernet flavors, with hints of berry and herb, finishing with firm, dry tannins.
