92 rating Vinous Media “(aged in 100% new French oak): An exotic, highly perfumed bouquet presents dark berries, cherry-vanilla, licorice, smoky oak and pipe tobacco. Smooth, palate-staining dark fruit flavors show an intriguing blend of richness and energy, picking up floral pastille and mocha qualities with air. Smooth and seamless cabernet, with strong finishing thrust and sweet, expansive persistence. (JR)” -Stephen Tanzer
