Practically jet-black and packed with cedary oak spice and smoky dark fruit. Brambly, lifted and dense, the wine is also vibrant and fresh, framed with chewy, long-throw tannins that travel far down the road.
95 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Nov. 09): “Positively brimming with succulent ripe-berry fruit and awash in lovely oak, this opulent but beautifully balanced working shows both fine fruity muscle and a careful winemaking hand. Its scant notes of pepper bring it a quiet varietal twist, while its ongoing themes of blackberries, vanilla, creme brulée and its accents of minerals make for a deep, involving, eminently satisfying wine."
94 points, Wine Spectator (Dec. 15, 09): "Firm, rich, intense and spicy, with vivid wild berry, blueberry, spice, mineral, sage and cedar notes. Delicate, balanced, full-bodied and persistent, ending with chewy tannins and great length."
