Wine Spectator 88 points - Solid plum and cassis fruit is lined with roasted cedar and tobacco notes. A cedary hint imparts a pleasant texture on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 43,915 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Showing considerable wood flavor, this wine has some tough tannins to overcome before it really shows its best. The fruit is ripe, full and packed with blackberry flavors. Once fully integrated, the wine should reveal more of a luscious side. Drink from 2017.
