99 Point Vintage, Wine Spectator
100% New Oak and Deep garnet-purple in color. The nose opens with dark cherry, plum and dark chocolate. The palate shows cedar and underbrush notions giving way to a core of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry pie, and touches of wild sage. Full-bodied, concentrated and densely packed with black fruit preserves, it has a firm, grainy frame with just enough freshness, finishing long and savory.
