#80 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
"A muscular style, offering a concentrated, intense mix of crushed red fruit and bittersweet chocolate flavors, with big structure and big tannins. Mint, tannins and spice fill the long, intense finish. Tempting now. Best from 2019 through 2014. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,000 cases made."
