92 Points, James Suckling - Aromas of mint, blackberry and cherry follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a persistent texture and flavor. Some age in large casks. A blend of mostly carmenere and cabernet sauvignon with some cabernet franc and merlot.
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast - Lightly roasted, leathery berry aromas are oaky but not overly woody or resiny. A dense, concentrated palate is creamy but appropriate in feel, while flavors of black cherry, cassis, baking spices, vanilla and caramel end in a lasting swirl of licorice, nutmeg and cocoa powder flavors.
Deep dark red in color. Expressive and aromatic notes of blackberry, blueberry and cherries are surrounded by cassis, leather, rosemary and bay leaf accents. The entry is intense and lush with flavors of plum, strawberry and blueberry. Soft and velvety tannins, bright acidity and seamlessly integrated oak provide lovely structure and a lingering finish.
