Offers a big mouthful of chocolate covered black raspberries, raisins, blueberry and licorice. Rich, fat and sexy in style.
92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Mar.12): “This serious and deeply cast Merlot leads with lovely aromas of black cherries, smoke and sweet oak, and its very rich, fully stuffed flavors meet every expectation. It is at one and the same time substantial and very well-balanced, and, while its ample tannins are not unnoticed, they in noway interfere with its insistent, layered finish."
THIS JUST IN!
91 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (May .12): Supple, juicy and classically dry, showing a distinctly cool aspect to its black raspberry, currant, licorice and menthol flavors. Finishes with firm structure...Elegantly styled merlot."
