50% Cabernet Sauvignon,
20% Syrah and other
red grape varieties.
Intense ruby red color. Well-defined and fresh on the nose, with aromas of red fruit
followed by complex notes of sweet spices and hints of menthol. On the palate, the
wine is soft, with wonderfully silky tannins highlighting delicate hints of fruit and
a long, satisfying finish.
"This is a lovely wine (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and other grapes) that shows very attractive softness in the mouth backed by a velvety texture and fine tannins. Black fruit, tobacco, spice and leather accent the bouquet: Pair it with black truffle Cornish hen."
"Deep red-ruby. Raspberry, pomegranate, mocha and herbs on the lively, inviting nose. Supple on entry, then chewy in the middle, with flavors of spicy red fruits, quinine, strawberry-rhubarb pie and tamarind framed by well-integrated acidity. Finishes ripe and smooth, with a dusting of aromatic herbs. Tasted three different times with inconsistent results: one bottle rated 91 points, another 90, and a third was disappointing and did not warrant an outstanding score. I'll give this wine the benefit of the doubt, since one bottle really was extremely impressive."
