Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Nice ripe saturated feel with lots of cassis and crushed plum fruit coursing along and mouthwatering spice and graphite kicking in on the finish. Very tasty.-J.M.

Hand harvested between September 10 and October 1. Aging will be 12-16 months in 40% new oak and 60% one year old barrels. Succulent dark fruit fills the nose. The palate follows with notes of prune cocoa dark chocolate coffee and tobacco. A bit tight right now so approach in 2015 and enjoy over the following 5-6 years. 7800 cases produced.

Full-bodied with polished tannins and smoky currants and mineral. Very Petit Verdot character on the palate with a spice fresh herb undertone.
