James Suckling 97 points - This red is powerfully spiced, offering an abundance of dark plum and blackberry flavors that feature a creamy texture. Ripe midpalate, with a long, lush finish that is loaded with dark chocolate and cardamom notes, accented by hints of dried mint. Carmenere with Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022. 15,000 cases made.
Intense carmine red in color with tremendous aromatic potency and a predominance of ripe red and black fruit, dairy notes, and a certain contribution of sweet spices, biscuits and pastries. 18 months in oak barrels contributed aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, nutmeg, and toast that harmonize very well with the ripe fruit.
