97-99The Wine Advocate

...vibrant scents of freshly crushed black cherries, warm plums and blueberry compote leading to notes of cassis, chocolate box, star anise and tapenade. The densely laden, full-bodied palate is jam-packed with black and blue fruit preserves and lots of exotic spice nuances, supported by velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with fantastic length and that signature minerally kick. Impressive.

97James Suckling

Blackberries, hazelnuts, blackcurrants and flowers. Crushed stones, too. Full-bodied with firm, polished tannins that give a lovely, creamy texture... Hints of citrus, too. Ethereal and weightless. Beautiful...

96Vinous / IWC

...terrific fruit presence and tons of raciness. Sweet red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender, mint and sweet spice give this effusive, silky Cabernet tons of immediacy and charm.

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
