Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2014
This is a wine that has great potential—you can tell from the firm tannins, tight acidity and closed texture. Initially, black currant flavors are touched with dark, dusty notes, but they finish with more juicy character... This is a wine that has great potential—you can tell from the firm tannins, tight acidity and closed texture. Initially, black currant flavors are touched with dark, dusty notes, but they finish with more juicy character on the afterntaste. Drink from 2017.

This has a chunky feel, with charcoal and cassis bush notes out front, followed by plum skin, steeped black currant and blackberry coulis flavors. A charcoal hint strides back in on the finish, with fresh acidity buried... This has a chunky feel, with charcoal and cassis bush notes out front, followed by plum skin, steeped black currant and blackberry coulis flavors. A charcoal hint strides back in on the finish, with fresh acidity buried throughout. Should age well. Best from 2015 through 2021. – JM

Vinous - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, July 2014
Good full medium ruby. Vibrant blackcurrant, cherry pit, botanical herbs and violet on the nose, lifted by subtle hints of juniper and minerals. Silky, suave and pure, offering very good intensity to the fruit-driven... Good full medium ruby. Vibrant blackcurrant, cherry pit, botanical herbs and violet on the nose, lifted by subtle hints of juniper and minerals. Silky, suave and pure, offering very good intensity to the fruit-driven flavors of dark cherry and blackberry. Nicely integrated acidity gives this wine a light touch. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent lift and verve. -- Ian D'Agata

64% cabernet sauvignon 33% merlot and 3% petite verdot with 13.5% alcohol. Aged in 50% new oak. Yields were 30 hl/ha from vines with an average age of 31 years. Inky purple color with an opaque core and a fuchsia rim... 64% cabernet sauvignon 33% merlot and 3% petite verdot with 13.5% alcohol. Aged in 50% new oak. Yields were 30 hl/ha from vines with an average age of 31 years. Inky purple color with an opaque core and a fuchsia rim. Bouquet of black fruit with aromas of cherry blossom and violet earthy minerals and pain grille. Black fruit flavors expand on the mid-palate of this medium-bodied wine with nicely integrated tannins adding structural balance. Enjoy from 2015 to 2025.
