  • “The tannins are apparent, the fruit is concentrated and the acidity is vibrant. I could be talking about a young Cabernet, but I am not. This one is powerful, structured and still a youngster with quite a life ahead. 94 ”

  • “Shy nose of cassis accented by violets and white pepper, becoming slightly chalky with airing. The flavors focus on cassis, picking up some leathery notes, along with a persistent chalky component; medium-full tannins. (89)”
