Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

90 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (ST)
Bright, full red-ruby. Musky dark berries, licorice, fresh herbs and minerals on the nose. Juicy and suave, with a fine-grained texture to the blackberry, cassis and spice flavors. Even, gentle tannins spread out nicely on the long, perfumed back end.

89 pts Wine Enthusiast Magazine 5/13 This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec is dry and spicy on the nose, with complexity and herbal leanings. The palate feels grabby and full, while the oaky flavor profile deals baked berry, earth, cinnamon and chocolate notes. It finishes with spice and chocolate flavors.

Best of Nation & Double Gold Medal -2013 San Francisco International Wine Competition
