This wine echoes past vintages of mineral black-fruit, toasty French oak, cassis and smoke characters. The aromas and flavors are very fruit forward, and the wine has a sweet entry turning to plush layers of cedar, tobacco, smoke and dark chocolate. A long and complex finish follows. Upon further airing, the wine becomes even more velvety-chocolate in nature.

92 points, Connoisseurs’ Guide (December 2009): “…deep and well-filled with the solidity and focus that is the winery hallmark…”
