James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, June 2014
A fantastic red with blackberry, blueberry, tar and walnuts. Full body, with very fine tannins and a long, long finish. It's a wonderfully polished yet rich wine. Blend of mostly malbec with some cabernet sauvignon. Drink... A fantastic red with blackberry, blueberry, tar and walnuts. Full body, with very fine tannins and a long, long finish.

Blackberry, blueberry and maple aromas announce a rich, ripe wine. There’s also toast and char on the nose. In the mouth, this is layered and grabby, with mossy black-fruit flavors that end in a cool, earthy swirl of cola... Blackberry, blueberry and maple aromas announce a rich, ripe wine. There’s also toast and char on the nose. In the mouth, this is layered and grabby, with mossy black-fruit flavors that end in a cool, earthy swirl of cola and licorice. This blend of 75% Malbec and 25% Syrah is a stunner and should be consumed now through 2016.

A glass-coating opaque purple/black color it offers up an impressive nose of mineral earth notes licorice soy espresso black cherry and black currant. Medium-bodied on the palate and surprisingly elegant it reveals layered spicy black fruit flavors excellent concentration and volume and enough structure to support several more years of cellaring. This lengthy offering will deliver peak drinking from 2013 to 2023. 92+ -Jay Miller

A dense and jammy red, featuring a polished core of cassis and black cherry puree, showing finely detailed hints of licorice and humus. Offers medium tannins, with the fruit echoing on the long finish. Malbec and Syrah...

Complex nose melds currant, black cherry, truffle, soy sauce, mocha and tobacco leaf. Sweet, suave and seamless, but with lovely vinosity shaping the flavors of currant, black cherry, truffle, spices and nutty oak. This wine's ripe, harmonious acidity gives it elegance. Finishes with sweet tannins that coat the front teeth and lingering notes of fruits, spices and earth.
