James Suckling – 92 points
Tobacco and blueberry aromas, as well as violets and cassis. The palate has impressive tannin structure with good carry and balance. Plenty of blueberry, plum and chocolate flavors on offer. A blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot, 8% cabernet franc, 8% petit sirah, 3% petit verdot and 2% malbec. Drink or hold.
