88 points, Wine Enthusiast (August 2008): "A good, rich Merlot-based Bordeaux blend. Its ripe, almost dcadent red and black currant and carob flavors are balanced with an herbal earthiness and soft, fine tannins."

Ron Nunes from MA
There were three of us sharing the wine with dinner, when my wife went to have a second glass and found very little left she insisted in opening a second bottle. Which we had no problem in finishing off. We are lucky however as we have two more left. Definitely an excellent find by CWC, job well done.            -18 Points
